Kewaunee children falling behind on vaccinations

With doctor’s offices closed to the public for months earlier this year, access to care has been challenging to come by for parents who are trying to get their young children vaccinated. The Kewaunee County Public Health Department is trying to reduce the backlog, but it’s by appointment only Monday through Friday. Director Cindy Kinnard says most children can get all of their shots in one trip. She adds that for those about to enter kindergarten and sixth grade, some vaccines are compulsory.

 


Daycare facilities also require that a child be up-to-date with immunizations. Inoculations are offered free of charge for those who are not covered by health insurance.
