Child receiving immunization shot from a doctorChildhood Immunizations have had an enormous impact on improving the health of children in the United States. Most parents today have never seen first-hand the devastating consequences that vaccine-preventable diseases have on a family or community. While these diseases are not common in the U.S., they persist around the world. It is important that we continue to protect our children with vaccines because outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases can and do occasionally occur in this country.

Vaccination is one of the best ways parents can protect infants, children, and teens from 16 potentially harmful diseases. Vaccine-preventable diseases can be very serious, may require hospitalization, or even be deadly - especially in infants and young children.

Adult ImmunizationsAdult: Immunizations are not just for children. Protection from childhood vaccines can wear off over time. And as you get older, you may also be at risk for vaccine-preventable diseases due to your job, hobbies, travel, or chronic health condition.

Regardless of age, all adults need immunizations to help them prevent getting and spreading serious diseases that could result in poor health, missed work, medical bills, and not being able to care for family.

Vaccines for International Travelers: Southwest District Health provides all routine childhood and adult vaccines but does not provide vaccines for international travel. If you are planning a trip and may require vaccinations, please contact one of the agencies below:
