Southern Nevada Health District's statement on childhood vaccines
A spokesperson for the Southern Nevada Health District released a statement on the government's recent study on childhood vaccines.
"The OIG report took a global look at the VFC program and highlighted areas where the program could be improved. It also underscored the importance of maintaining a robust public health system to support quality assessment and improvement in immunization services. VFC providers generally manage their public and private stock vaccines in a similar manner and 90 percent of U.S. children are vaccinated by a provider that participates in the VFC program. Thus, strengthening VFC vaccine storage and handling practices will help improve vaccination services nationally and benefit all children.
