With back-to-school season in full swing, we turn our attention to school immunizations for today’s episode. Our guest is Sarah Hughes, immunization coordinator with Public Health Madison & Dane County, who answers a host of listener calls about the vaccination schedule for K–12 students, healthcare access for low-income communities, the public controversy around vaccination, and the importance of shared decision-making among parents, children, and healthcare providers.
