Time to immunize kids for new school year is now

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

The new school year is fast approaching. On Tuesday, doctors and nurses were busy ensuring students have the proper vaccinations.

If your child isn’t properly vaccinated, he or she could be removed from the classroom in order to keep other students from being exposed.

Medical officials said there will be parents who resist.

“That’s their opinion, but they only see the value of it when their child gets sick or ill. We encourage all parents to make an informed decision about what they’re doing for their child’s health,” said Betsy VanDeusen with Immunize Nevada.

In Nevada, a parent can opt a child out of vaccinations for religious or medical reasons.
