Ensuring that our children are properly vaccinated against diseases/illnesses is a large focus of our agency. Vaccinations are invaluable in the prevention of certain illnesses and deaths among our community. Prevention and protection of the public from vaccine-preventable diseases is not only our goal, but our hope.
