Are Your Kids Immunized?

There are new requirements for immunization for children.  The  state rules have changed to include new vaccinations this year.

  • Now, kindergartners, sixth-graders and kids over age 11 changing school districts need two doses of the chicken pox vaccine.
  • Sixth-graders and those over age 11 who are changing districts need a meningococcal vaccine to protect against meningitis and a “Tdap” booster vaccine that protects against tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis, commonly known as whooping cough.

To find out more, you can visit the state website as well as the Grand Rapids Press immunization article.
