Child Vaccinations

Making sure that children of all ages receive their vaccinations on time is one of the most important things parents can do to ensure their children’s long-term health - as well as the health of friends, classmates, and others in the community. Although some vaccine-preventable diseases have become rare thanks to vaccines, outbreaks still happen. 

Make sure your child is up-to-date on his/her immunizations. Click the immunization link below to view what your child will need or may need to catch up on.
