Families Urged to Keep Vaccinations Current

State Health Officials in the Commonwealth are calling on parents to take steps to be certain their children have been immunized for a variety of diseases. This is National Immunization Awareness Month, and State Epidemiologist Kraig Humbaugh says its important not to become complacent about the issue.

Dr. Humbaugh says its especially important to have small children vaccinated against whooping cough, in light of an increase in the number of whooping cough cases reported in Kentucky this year.
