Make sure you’re keeping up with your child’s vaccinations

Well-child visits and recommended vaccinations are essential and help make sure children stay healthy. Children who are not protected by vaccines are more likely to get diseases like measles and whooping cough. These diseases are extremely contagious and can be very serious, especially for babies and young children. In recent years, there have been outbreaks of these diseases, especially in communities with low vaccination rates.

Well-child visits are essential for many reasons, including:

  • Tracking growth and developmental milestones
  • Discussing any concerns about your child’s health
  • Getting scheduled vaccinations to prevent illnesses like measles and whooping cough (pertussis) and other serious diseases

Our Mission: To promote and protect the health of our community by preventing disease and injury through assessment and program implementation in cooperation with our community partners.

Dr. Raaj Ruparel, M.D. – Health Officer
