With roughly one-third of Ventura County's 2-year-old children failing to receive proper immunizations, health-care providers are working together to protect children from disease. A new state grant has added nearly $200,000 to the countywide immunization program. The funds will be spent targeting children most at risk of missing their shots. The county Public Health Department already receives about $500,000 for the immunization effort.
