Parents, Kids Reminded to Keep Vaccinations Up-to-Date as School Year Begins


The school year has started, but it’s not too late to make sure you and your kids are up to date on their vaccinations. That’s the message from the Fond du Lac County Health Department, where Public Health Officer Kim Mueller says getting vaccinated is meant to protect not only yourself, but also the community as a whole. “That’s why it’s so important - it’s not just about one individual person, about one individual choice - it’s about the community and how we can work together to protect the community and to protect the very vulnerable individuals who can’t get a vaccine for medical reasons.” Mueller says getting a vaccine against a deadly disease can ensure that you’re not going to possibly catch that disease and then spread it on to someone else. Data from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services says nearly 50,000 children across Wisconsin have vaccination waivers, and that immunization rates for 5 to 6 year olds is “dangerously low” in every county in Wisconsin.
