Record Numbers of Teen Vaccinations

Dr. Kristen Feemster,  medical director for the immunization program at the Philadelphia Department of Public Health, said vaccination rates are on target for tetanus, diphtheria and pertusis along with meningococcal disease.

“We have providers that are making strong recommendations to families. We have an immunization program here to support our providers,” said Feemster. “We have a very robust registry so that we can keep track of how well we’re doing and when you know how well you’re doing you know where you can work and improve even more.”
