Connecticut requires almost a dozen immunizations by the time a child enters school. As WNPR's Lucy Nalpathanchil reports there's a temporary shortage of one particular vaccine.
The vaccine is called Pentacel and it's a combination vaccine that protects children from several different diseases.
Diptheria, Tetanus, Pertussis, Polio and Meningitis. Four doses are required before a child turns nineteen months old.
But if your child is due for his or her next dose of Pentacel, it may not be available.
