Making It Better School Year Soon: Getting Shots Now

COLUMBUS, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – With the new school year beginning in just a few weeks, Ohio’s chief health official wants parents to make sure their kids are protected against ten different diseases.

They can do that by getting vaccinated in a timely manner.

Director of the state’s health department Dr Bruce Vanderhoff says immunization rates were up for the ’22-’23 school year.

But 10-percent of kindergarten children were still missing at least one dose of a necessary vaccine.

Dr Vanderhoff says a 25-year-old study lining vaccines with autism has been debunked.
