With August coming soon, parents and students are getting ready for the beginning of a new school term and immunizations are a key part of the preparation.
The Arkansas Department of Health has proposed some changes to immunization requirements. If they are approved on July 24, they will go into effect on Sept. 1.
Health Department officials say they anticipate approval.
The changes have been in the process for several years, said Jennifer Dillaha, medical director for immunizations for the Health Department.
