Immunizations & Vaccinations
The goal of the immunization program is to reduce and ultimately eliminate the incidence of vaccine preventable diseases by working in conjunction with the public and private health care providers throughout the state. Accomplishing this goal will require achieving and maintaining higher vaccination coverage levels, improving vaccination strategies among under vaccinated populations, prompt reporting and thorough investigation of suspected cases, and rapid institution of disease control measures.
