Immunizations

Why Immunize?    

    Immunizations have been given successfully since the 1700's and are among some of the greatest accomplishments of public health.  Vaccines protect from diseases that were once common in the United States.  But despite the accomplishment, children and adults still die each year from these preventable diseases.

    Diseases are becoming rare due to immunizations.  It is important for people, young and old, to be up to date on their immunizations.  If we take away the protection given by vaccination, more and more people will be infected and disease will spread and then the progress we've made over hundreds of years will be lost.

    We don't just vaccinate to protect our children, we vaccinate to protect our future.  By eradicating disease, parents in the future may be able to trust that diseases like polio and meningitis won't infect, cripple or kill their children.

Immunization Hours

Monday:  10:00AM-11:00AM; 1:00PM-5:00PM

Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays:  8:00AM-11:00AM; 1:00PM-3:00PM

Please Note:  We offer immunizations on a walk in basis.  Clients are seen on a first come, first served basis with limited availability. 

Unfortunately, we are unable to predict how busy we will be on any given day.  We strongly encourage all of our clients to arrive as close as possible to 8AM or 1PM in order to provide the best possible chance of receiving services.

 For children under the age of 18, a parent or guardian must sign the permission form.  


Tuberculosis (TB) Hours

TB Tests are administered on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays during Immunization Hours.

Please Note:  The client will need to return three (3) days after being tested for the result of the test to be read.  Failure to do so will result in retesting.


Travel Consultations

 Consultations regarding immunizations suggested and/or required for traveling outside of the country are available upon request.  For related questions, visit Traveler's Health CDC.
