Full Story
The Florida Department of Health in Brevard encourages parents to have their children immunized as the new school year approaches.

Parents of kindergartners and 7th graders are encouraged to review their children’s immunization record to ensure they are ready for the upcoming school year. Students entering college are also encouraged to ensure their immunizations are up to date.
