Rachel Orden, 12, waits with her mother Julie Kwiatkowski in the lobby of the Collier County Health Department immunization office before she gets her seventh grade vaccination Thursday morning.

In Collier, about 800 kids don't get vaccinated, with parents citing a religious exemption. For more information about vaccination schedules, visit www.collierhealthdept.org. Lexey Swall/Staff
