Home 5 Immunizations

Why Immunize?

Immunizations are one of public health’s greatest achievements. Diseases that were once deadly, such as polio, are mostly eradicated. Unfortunately, thousands of people each year die from vaccine-preventable diseases in the United States. Immunizations are a critical component to keeping our community safe and healthy.

Immunizations at the Health Department

Immunizations are available at all three health department locations. We recommend calling ahead for an appointment time. Please bring immunization records to the appointment. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
