Immunizations Program

Vaccination is one of the best ways to protect yourself from potentially harmful diseases.

Vaccine-preventable diseases can be very serious, may require hospitalization, or even be fatal, especially in infants and young children. Children need vaccines to protect themselves from certain dangerous childhood diseases, such as measles, mumps and rubella. Vaccines are also available to help people of all ages get and spread serious illnesses such as the flu, meningitis, and whooping cough or whooping cough.

Getting vaccinated helps our communities stay healthier. This is because diseases spread more easily from person to person among people who have not been vaccinated.

Child Care and School Immunization Requirements

Children are required to receive certain vaccinations to attend public and private elementary and secondary schools, and a child care center.
