Immunizing children on schedule is the best protection against dangerous diseases. Along with regular checkups at the doctor’s office or health clinic, immunizations are the best way to keep all children and adults healthy. Help your children grow up strong and healthy. It’s up to parents to make sure their children get all of their immunizations by age 2.

The Health Department follows the combined Recommended Childhood Schedule approved by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP).

State provided vaccines are available to children between the age of birth through 18 years of age.    Don't Delay...Vaccinate Today!

The HPV vaccine is a current topic of controversy in the immunization world.    For more information on when the vaccine is recommended and on HPV, visit the CDC.  Also, visit this blog for a good blog entitled "Why Some Parents are Refusing HPV Vaccine for their Children."

Pertussis, also known as whooping cough, is a potentially deadly infection that can strike at any age, but is particularly dangerous for babies. More than 60% of babies (or 3 out of 5) with reported cases of pertussis are hospitalized, and more than 90% of pertussis-related deaths are among babies younger than 4 months of age.  Please click here for further information on Pertussis..
