Infant and Child Immunizations



Immunizations are an excellent way to protect your child against many childhood diseases.

The American Academy of Pediatrics, American Academy of Family Physicians and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases recommend a series of immunizations to protect your children against vaccine-preventable diseases.

Adolescent Immunization

Are you 11-19 years old? If so, YOU need to be vaccinated against some serious diseases. Many people think that shots are only for babies. Actually, there are millions of people between the ages of 11-19 who are at risk of getting serious diseases like tetanus, meningitis, chickenpox, infections leading to cervical cancer and others.

Are you at risk? Protecting your health is a lifelong project. Getting immunized is an adult responsibility that teens can start practicing now.
