Immunization Time

Back to school time also means the time to check up on your child's immunization record.

This is particularly important to East Texans because of our proximity to Houston.

A new report shows that Houston's childhood immunization rates have slipped to the third-worst in the nation. The drop comes after a new state law allowed more parents to refuse vaccinations for their kids.

Local schools encourage parents to check their child's immunizations records. Your doctor can tell you if your child needs a visit before school starts.
