The head of the Minnesota Medical Association is encouraging Minnesota families to practice good health through routine vaccinations. MMA President Dr. Keith Stelter says it’s estimated that 70 to 80 percent of Minnesota’s children have delayed physician visits and important vaccinations due to the coronavirus pandemic:

“Particularly in vaccines like the MMR or the measles, mumps, rubella, which is a very contagious disease.”

Minnesota’s physicians strongly urge parents to continue with their children’s routine vaccinations for the health and safety of their children, families, and the community. Dr. Stelter, says health care practices and clinics are doing their part to ensure a safe, secure, and healthy environment for patients and vaccinations.
