August is Immunization Awareness Month in Delaware County

    August is Immunization Awareness Month in Delaware County.

    The status was proclaimed at last night’s county council meeting, where residents got a peek at the list of immunization recommendations for adults and children.

    Earlier this month, the state Department of Health issued new immunization regulations for kids.
