Health officials ask parents to update children's vaccines before start of new school year

TULSA - Health officials ask parents to make sure their children's vaccines are up to date.

The Centers for Disease Control says that vaccines are the best way to ward off diseases.

You must immunize your child before school, unless you have special written permission proving otherwise.

Tulsa Health Department officials say most children going into kindergarten need a second dose of MMR, (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccine, a fourth dose of polio vaccine and a fifth dose of Tdap (diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis vaccine.

Officials say pre-teens should get Meningitis, HPV, Tdap and flu vaccines.

Parents should make sure their teens are caught up on hepatitis B, polio, MMR and varicella.

Health officials recommend getting your children caught up on any missed shots as soon as possible.
