This week is National Infant Immunization Week. And Harrisonburg officials are trying to get that message out to everyone, especially the Spanish speaking population.

When kids start school at around five-years-old, they are told that they must get certain shots. The Health Department officials say it’s just as important to get it done earlier. They say one way they reach the Hispanic population is going to the Latino fair and other events in the Hispanic community.

They also get the word out through the Women Infant Children program, a supplemental food program for infants and new mothers.
