It's nearly back to school time, and there are updated requirements for immunizations.

A crowd of students and their parents filled the Mozart Park field house for this annual health fair.

This year, the state board of health approved recommendations requiring all sixth through 12th grade students receive vaccinations for several illnesses, including pertussis, tetanus and diphtheria.
