Immunizations

Did you know?

In the past 15 years, varicella vaccinations have reduced chickenpox by 95% and reduced hospitalizations due to complications from chickenpox by 90%.

Vaccines help people become immune to diseases without you having to get sick. Making an informed choice about immunization is key to protecting your family’s health. We encourage residents of all ages to get vaccinated according to national recommendations. 
Vaccines are carefully developed and monitored for vaccine safety.  Before vaccinations, many more people in the U.S. got seriously ill or died of once common diseases such as:

  • Measles
  • Influenza
  • Diphtheria
  • Rubella (German Measles)
  • Mumps
  • Tetanus
  • Bacterial haemophilus influenza type b (hib or H flu)
  • Whooping cough (pertussis)

New Varicella Vaccine Requirement for High School

In school year 2016-17, all high school students are required to have two doses of varicella (chickenpox) vaccine. All students in kindergarten-8th grade have already been required to get two doses of varicella vaccine. Students who have already received two doses of varicella vaccine are not required to get more shots.

School Immunization Exemptions

A licensed health care provider needs to sign the Certificate of Exemption for a parent or guardian to exempt their child from school and child care immunization requirements. The signature verifies that the provider gave the parent or guardian information about the benefits and risks of immunization. A parent or guardian can also turn in a signed letter from a health care provider stating the same information.
