Get Your Kids Immunized Early

It's hard to believe, but school starts again in just a few weeks. Are your kids ready? Not with books or back-to-school clothes, but-up-to date vaccinations. Kids and parents are lining up at the Chatham County Health Department, trying to beat the back-to-school rush.

Now's the time, since it's going to get busier as school gets closer. It's also the best way to keep your kids healthy.

"Best way to prevent disease in the community is to get vaccinated, and immunizations is the easiest way to do it," said the health department's Beth Ann Hartley.

You'll hear this again, a lot, in the next few weeks. They won't let your kids stay in school if their immunizations aren't up to date.
