Immunizations

Immunizations are one of public health's greatest achievements. Vaccines help prevent diseases and help keep people of all ages healthy. To make sure you are completing the appropriate vaccine schedule on time, please contact your primary care provider. If you need assistance finding vaccine services please contact our staff.

Why are vaccines important?

Scheduling

Children under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. If a parent/guardian is unable to accompany the child, we  require written permission from the parent/guardian and another adult to accompany the child.  

  • An individual sick with something more serious than a cold and/or a fever of 100.4 degrees on the day of the clinic should not receive immunizations that day.
  • Attention Foreign Exchange Student Host Families: Please let us know when making the appointment that you are the host family. Special arrangements for parental permission need to be made before the clinic appointment.
