As we work to improve the health of all Kentuckians, vaccines are a key part of the process. Vaccines are safe and scientifically proven to protect the individual who receives the vaccine as well as families, friends and communities that interact together. Amy Herrington, RN, is the clinical team manager for the Department for Public Health Immunization Branch. In addition to raising six children, she has spent many years as a certified emergency nurse and nurse educator. Since day one, her career has been driven by a desire to help others and provide a voice for those who do not have one. Today we discuss the importance of education, availability and collaboration in the elimination of vaccine preventable diseases throughout the commonwealth.
