Duvals top health official concerned about lack of vaccinations
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. As kids head back to school theres a real concern about their health beyond the coronavirus and its something parents can control. Duval County was above the national average when it came to vaccinations but now the numbers are so low that health officials are concerned it could lead to another health crisis. This is not a political issue, Dr. Pauline Rolle, director of the Duval County health department, said. Its not just a Duval issue, this is a worldwide issue and so everyone is put at risk by children not being vaccinated appropriately, Rolle said. There are several options through the county health department to get free vaccines.
