Immunization Program and Flu Clinics
Focuses on disease prevention with an emphasis on childhood shots.
Your baby deserves the best health and that includes protection from 13 diseases, which are preventable with vaccines. You help protect your child not just the first time, but every time you keep your child’s immunizations up-to-date.
Immunization has saved the lives of more babies and children than any other medical intervention in the last 50 years.
It’s safe, it’s simple - and it works!

Do Bugs Need Drugs?
- Handwashing is the best way to stop the spread of infections.
- Not all bugs are created equal. Both bacteria and viruses cause infections but antibiotics only work against bacteria.
- Use antibiotics wisely to stop bacteria from becoming resistant to antibiotics.
