August is the time of year when parents prepare for the start of a new school year. Getting ready to go “back to school” can be an overwhelming task and sometimes things slip through the cracks. The Trumbull Health Department wants to remind parents to add school-age immunizations to their “back to school” preparation lists. Preschoolers to college students all need vaccines to ensure long-term health.
“Many childhood illnesses can be prevented with a vaccination,” said Health Director Rhonda Capuano. “Ensure your child is safe from illness this school year. Make sure vaccinations are up to date.”
