Dallas: County offering free back to school vaccinations

Doctors in Texas are more concerned about children and have started changing the way they communicate with patients.
 
According to reports from the Texas Department of State Health Services, there is an increase in the number of children who exempt themselves from vaccines and the percentage increased by 14% as compared to last year. More than 60,000 parents living in Texas have opted out and chosen not to give vaccination to their children since 2003.
 

Doctors in Texas are worried and believe that this ‘anti-vaccination movement’ might result in a widespread disease outbreak.
 
The head of Dallas County Health and Human Services, Dr. Philip Huang, discussed this problem on Good Day and mentioned that all of us have the same interest in protecting a child and his or her health. Lots of misinformation, tons of incorrect messages, and misguidance on the Internet have made people believe that vaccines aren’t safe or ineffective.
 
The increase in measles cases this past year should alert parents and encourage them to take back to school vaccine before their kids go to school.
 
DCHHS is giving free vaccines for children on 10th August, Saturday from 9 am to noon so doesn’t matter your children are insured or not, you can bring them for vaccination.
