Parents can bring their kids in to get up to date on immunizations. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends kids get various immunizations, including the chickenpox vaccine, the hepatitis A vaccine and the COVID-19 vaccine, the Kalamazoo County HCS said.
It said immunization rates in Kalamazoo County have fallen since early 2020 and it is still below its 2019 levels.
