Ohio is the only state in the nation that does not require immunization at its day care centers, but that could change soon with a push from health officials and concerned Ohioans.
Toledo-Lucas County Health Commissioner, Dr. David Grossman, says he supports the push to require immunizations in all Ohio day cares, because they can help protect against chickenpox, hepatitis B, polio and whooping cough -- just to name a few. He and other health officials have plans to take their concerns to Ohio legislators.
"It's a way to get people vaccinated. It's another way to mandate that they get their vaccinations on time, because some of these start way before preschool or day care, and people, if they don't wanna do it, there's no reason not to do it, except the risk of disease. So, this is another mechanism that if they want their kids in day care, then they have them vaccinated," explained Grossman.
If parents are against vaccinations for religious reasons, that would be recognized, according to Grossman. He says shots and hand washing are the biggest part of public health.
