Community Health Agency encourages vaccination

The Branch-Hillsdale-St. Joseph Community Health Agency is encouraging parents to keep pre-teen and teenage students prepared for school by being fully immunized.

Whenever children are brought into group settings, there is a chance for diseases to spread, according to Yvonne Atwood, director of Personal Health and Disease Prevention at the tri-county agency.

The health department offers immunizations by appointment, and on Tuesdays, in St. Joseph County at its Three Rivers-based location.
