All children should begin immunizations at birth or age two months, and follow an immunization schedule as determined by your health care provider. If your child is behind on immunizations, call your doctor or clinic today to get them up-to-date. Children entering kindergarten, preschool, seventh grade, or a child care facility must have documentation of certain immunizations.

Much like children and adolescents, adults need to keep their immunizations up-to-date to protect themselves from diseases that can result in death or disability.

These vaccines include:

  • Hepatitis A and B
  • Herpes Zoster (shingles)
  • Meningococcal
  • MMR (measles, mumps, rubella)
  • Td (tetanus, diphtheria)
  • Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis)

Program 17

For clients 19 years of age and older who do not have insurance or are under insured.
