children's health

While the local infant mortality rate is still unacceptably high, far higher than the national rate, but there have been recent signs of significant improvement. More babies are surviving to their first birthday in Cincinnati than in previous years, a milestone acknowledged earlier this summer at the Cincinnati Health Department’s Infant Vitality Forum. 

 An audit from the Kentucky Immunization Project found most of the children seen at the four health centers of the Northern Kentucky Health Department had received all of the recommended vaccinations. 

95 percent of the children coming through the centers had received all of the recommended immunizations.  District Health Director Dr. Lynne Saddler says most of the remaining five percent received their shots from other providers.
