Regular immunity declines as Michigan students prepare for the fall semester


Mich. (WLUC)-Students over 12 years of age are advised to receive the COVID-19 vaccine before school begins this fall. Health officials now say that it is just as important for children to be vaccinated on a regular basis.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) requires parents to ensure that their children are up to date for all immunity, including chickenpox, whooping cough, polio, and measles. Dr. Joneigh Khaldun, Chief Medical Executive of MDHHS, cites the successful track record of these vaccinations in the past.

“From 1994 to 2013, vaccination will prevent an estimated 322 million illnesses, 21 million hospitalizations and 732,000 deaths,” said Dr. Khaldun.

However, according to I Vaccinate intelligence, daily childhood and teen immunization rates are significantly reduced in all age groups. The rates are less than 70% for children 19-36 months old and 73.7% for adolescents.

According to the LMAS District Health Department, only 52% of newborns to 2 years old in 4 counties have the latest immunity. A spokesman, Kelly Ott, said the pandemic had disrupted much of the department’s normal operations. Now the family has a chance to get back on track.

“Last month we started opening a clinic in our office for people of all ages who are late for vaccination,” Ott said.

When the pandemic began, Delta and Menominee counties also fell below 70% immunization rates. Public Health and Immune Coordinator Jenny Miller says it is important to be vaccinated against all possible illnesses to prevent children from spreading throughout the population.

“Some illnesses require reaching certain herd immunity levels,” Miller said. “Lower levels of immunization carry the risk of developing certain illnesses. Currently, when I’m full with COVID, I don’t want to mix in other infections.”

People living in the LMAS district, or in Delta and Menominee counties, are advised to contact their local health department if they do not have the latest information on immunity.
