Children in Orange County will be able to get all-of their state required vaccinations before enrolling in school or childcare at three additional Department of Health locations starting in May.

“Requirements from other countries differ from here. And that’s why we want to get the message out in the state of all the vaccines required for school and daycare.”

The National Institutes of Health says there has been a resurgence of some preventable diseases like whooping cough because of a growing number of parents who chose not to vaccinate their children.
