Early childhood vaccinations are rising in Iowa according to the state Department of Public Health.  Chrystal Woller with Washington County Public Health says while they are lower than the national average of 70 percent, they are reminding everyone of the importance of making sure children receive the proper vaccinations.

She says they are making great strides in the county and have a goal of seeing at least 90 percent of the children have their shots.  Woller says they offer immunization clinics the first and third Tuesday and Thursdays of every month in Washington and the fourth Thursday in Kalona.
