Immunization Information

Immunizations are considered one of the greatest medical achievements for the 20th century. Vaccines prevent disease in people who receive them and protect those who come in contact with unvaccinated individuals. Diseases that once killed many children and adults are rarely seen today because of immunization. But these diseases are still around, especially in other parts of the world. Vaccination continues to be one of the most important things you can do to protect your child and yourself from dangerous diseases.

Public Health offers immunization against childhood and adult vaccine-preventable diseases. Click here for a list of what we offer. Go to list of immunization clinic dates and times.
