Community First Health Plans Warns Back to School Shots are More Urgent Than Ever

On Monday, July 30, 2012, Community First Health Plans Senior Medical Director Dr. Sheila Y. Owens-Collins spoke about the outbreak of whooping cough and why students should receive their immunizations early.

Whooping cough is at an epidemic level according to the Centers for Disease Control.  So far this year, there have been 18,000 cases reported nationwide including nine deaths.  Cases of whooping cough have nearly doubled from last year in Bexar County.

Dr. Owens-Collins spoke with local media about the epidemic and the urgent need for students to have their immunization records up to date before school starts. In 2010, more than 2,000 children in San Antonio were turned away because they did not have updated immunization records.

The press conference took place at the South Texas Center for Pediatric Care on 123 Stone Oak Loop in San Antonio, Texas.
