State Requires More Immunizations For Students
The state is requiring more immunizations for students entering the sixth grade this fall, and for students 11 to 18-years-old, changing schools. The vaccines fight against Meningitis, chickenpox and Tetanus/Diphtheria/Pertussis. Health Departments are working with schools to spread the word. The final decision is still up to parents. You can sign a waiver saying you don't want your child to get the immunizations. 9&10's Christina Vecchioni and photojournalist Aaron Smith have more details.
