County Health Department Reminds Us About Immunizations

The Broome County Health Department is reminding us that August is National Immunization Awareness Month.

The Health Department says that the purpose of this observance is to highlight the importance of immunizations, one of the top accomplishments of the 20th Century. We are also told that vaccination rates for some diseases are not meeting public health goals and that disease outbreaks still occur.

Immunizations are for various reasons throughout our lives.
