The new school year is just around the corner and the Department of Health and Hospitals is reminding parents, "No shots, No School. It's the Law." State immunization director Dr. Frank Welch says now is the time to make sure your student is current on their shots.
He says vaccination is a simple process that helps keep children healthy so they can spend more time in school and out of the doctor's office.
He says with up to 30 kids in a classroom and thousands in a school, infections and illness can spread very very quickly, "You really have to say to yourself...it's not just for my kid but it's for all the kids and making sure everyone is protected."
Parents can obtain copies of shot records for their child's doctor or a Federally Qualified Health Center.
