Shasta County public health urging students to get vaccinated during coronavirus pandemic 08-18-2020

Published August 20, 2020

Public Health leaders urging students get vaccinated as flu season looms and the coronavirus still running rampant through the country.

California law requires students to get vaccinated in order to attend school. That has not changed, even though schools are adopting a hybrid or distance model of learning.

“It's for health reasons as an individual,” one parent tells Action News Now.

“You’re protecting yourself but also if your get your shots you're also protecting the community and I think it's important on both aspects.”
