Kewaunee County targets vaccine skippers

Kewaunee County could join others in the state asking the Wisconsin Legislature to make sure parents get their kids vaccinated. The vote comes after the state health department released data showing 91.9 percent of students meeting vaccination requirements, almost half a percent lower than 2018 and three percent lower than what is recommended to protect the most vulnerable from certain diseases. Kewaunee County Board Chairperson Robert Weidner says it is about protecting kids.

A bill is already on the floor of the legislature to remove Wisconsin from a list of 15 states granting personal conviction waivers that allow parents to opt-out of mandatory vaccines for their kids. The Kewaunee County Board will also discuss details concerning the Dana Farm project and the second reading of its ATV ordinance when it meets Tuesday evening in Kewaunee at 6 p.m.
