It's back-to-school time -- make sure your children's vaccines are up-to-date.

Vaccines help protect children against 14 serious childhood diseases, like whooping cough and measles.

Vaccine-preventable diseases can be very serious, may require hospitalization, or can be deadly - especially in young children.

Make vaccines part of your child's regular school physical before they enter kindergarten and seventh grade.

Contact your health care provider today to make sure you and your family stay on track for immunizations.

For eligible residents, vaccinations are available year-round at state health centers and county/ municipal health departments. To find a location near you, visit our state health centers page.
