Community Works


The Health Department’s Immunization Program reduces the burden of vaccine-preventable disease in our community, to all residents through their life span, through education and guidance, along with distribution of publicly funded vaccine to those most at risk, Our program is a recent recipient of the Certificate of Achievement Healthy People 2020 and 2017 Improvement Award, in recognition of outstanding achievement in increasing childhood immunization coverage rates. In FY17, 1,568 clients were served, with 1,623 non-travel, non-flu vaccines administered. 259 travel vaccines were administered, while 104 Tuberculosis tests were administered. We work hard to ensure that we meet the goal of having 90 percent of those ages 24 to 35 months fully vaccinated.
