With many students on spring break this week the Door County Department of Public Health says this is as good a time as ever to get your children vaccinated. Especially before leaving Door County to go on a vacation it’s very important to be fully vaccinated according to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, so as not to catch or spread disease. Katie VanLaanen, a nurse for the Door County Department of Public Health, says it’s a good time to get your kids vaccinated as many college students are also on spring break.
Southern Door, Sturgeon Bay and Sevastopol Schools will have all or part of this week off for spring break. The Wisconsin Department of Health Services says 228 people have contracted measles so far in 2019 including some cases in Illinois.
