To protect, promote and improve the health of our community

Immunizations are for Adults too!Woman biking

Immunizations are NOT just for kids! Whether a young adult, middle-aged adult, or senior citizen, we all need immunizations to keep us and our families healthy. Getting vaccinated protects us from getting sick.  It also helps us protect our loved ones, especially infants and those with chronic disease or who are immune compromised, by preventing their exposure to illnesses like the flu, whooping cough, or mumps.

The specific immunizations that you need as an adult are determined by factors such as your age, lifestyle, high-risk conditions, type and locations of travel, and previous immunizations. Throughout your adult life, you will need immunizations to get and maintain protection against disease and maintain health.
