Vaccinations for Children

The beginning of the new school year means parents need to check and see if their young scholars are up to date with their immunizations. In all 50 states children entering kindergarten must have certain vaccines. Some states require as few as four, while one, Connecticut, says they must have nine. Here in Florida, the number is five.
