IL officials encourage immunization updates

Illinois health and education officials are reminding parents to update their children’s immunizations before school starts this fall.  

New state health department rules require sixth and ninth graders show proof of having the T-dap vaccine.  That’s the booster shot that fights tetanus, diphtheria and whooping cough.  State officials say whooping cough is on the rise in Illinois.
