• State urging vaccine talks

    BURLINGTON — The Vermont Health Department is launching an online campaign to encourage conversations about childhood immunizations.

    The web-centered campaign called “It’s OK to Ask,” offers resources to help parents make informed decisions about immunization.

    The website has research-based medical information, video discussions among Vermont moms and a local pediatrician on a variety of topics.

    It includes an interactive timeline tracing the history of vaccines back to the 1700s.

    Parents can also submit questions that will be reviewed and answered by a local pediatrician, nurse or fellow parent.

    Health Commissioner Dr. Harry Chen said some parents have questions about vaccines and the Health Department wants to see as many children who can be protected against vaccine-preventable diseases have that opportunity.

    The website can be found at www.oktoaskvt.org .
