Immunizations For School-Age Students Is Down

According to recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), immunizations for school-age children decreased again for the second year in a row, leaving hundreds of thousands of children at risk from vaccine-preventable diseases like measles and whooping cough. Likewise, only about 50% of children have been vaccinated against influenza (flu) this season – and more than 100 children have already lost their lives. As we continue to deal with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and outbreaks of other vaccine-preventable diseases, it’s more important than ever to inform others about the real burden of these diseases.
