Catch-up immunization for adolescents

APPOMATTOX, VA (WWBT) - Dr. John Clay is concerned about the adolescent age group. Specifically with regards to immunizations.

Since 2007, doctors have been recommending the administration of a second chickenpox vaccine.

Only 31 percent of Virginia adolescents age 13-17 have had the second chickenpox vaccination.

Ask about this at sports physicals or any routine visit with your physician or your child's physician.
