Get­ting vac­cines at lo­cal school

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Opinion -

Grow­ing up in Old Fig among old money and new money, there was one thing I clearly re­mem­ber: all our vac­ci­na­tions were held in the Bullard Gram­mar School au­di­to­rium on the cor­ner of Shaw and Palm.

The county health de­part­ment would come out and vac­ci­nate all of us young chil­dren and it was very or­ga­nized.

Now, with the measles out­break, why can’t this be or­ga­nized again at our schools to­day.

The schools would secure the records along with the par­ents, as many par­ents don’t even have a doc­tor of their own.

Is this too simple of a sug­ges­tion. Maybe not.
