Are Immunizations Up To Date?
Check to be sure YOU, Your Children and Your Grandchildren are up to date on all the recommended immunizations needed. We have a goal to work with all who can in the West End to meet the GOAL 2000..... That ALL children by the age of TWO years will have received the recommended immunizations. SIXTEEN immunizations to protect against TEN common childhood diseases: measles, mumps, rubella (German measles), diptheria, pertussis (whooping cough), tetanus, polio, haemophilus influenzae b (Hib disease or a type of meningitis), hepatitis B and varicella (chicken pox).
The Health Resource Center is a walk-in place where people can receive immunizations. We utilize the state vaccine and charge a $10 administration cost. Sadly, we are not able to be reimbursed for Medicaid coupons, but we can give the immunizations without charge if individuals are not able to receive them at the Health Dept. monthly clinic or at your health care providers. Call Lana Rosten-Mahoney, R.N., B.S. at the Health Resource Center: 374-6271, ext. 117 for further information.
