School kids not vaccinated

MIAMI (WFLX) - As students prepare to head back to school this week, a new report is howing that some kids never got the correct immunizations.

In Palm Beach County, 90 percent of kindergartners last year had the required vaccinations.

Kids without the required vaccinations are allowed to go to class under a provisional status.

Miami-Dade county had the lowest number of kids vaccinated at 77 percent.

Health officials are concerned because the students not vaccinated can put others at higher risk of catching measles, mumps and whooping cough.
