Immunizations

Immunization is one of the most important ways to protect individuals and communities against serious infectious diseases and their consequences. Widespread immunization has virtually eliminated many serious diseases - such as polio, measles, meningitis caused by Haemophilus influenza type B (Hib), congenital rubella, diphtheria, and smallpox - that were once responsible for millions of infections and thousands of deaths each year. It is always better to prevent a disease than to have to treat it.

Getting both your annual Flu shot and your updated COVID-19 vaccine are the first steps to protect yourself from respiratory illness this season. In fact - you can get BOTH of these vaccines at the same time! Please visit a pharmacy or your healthcare provider that is considered “IN-NETWORK” with your health insurance plan. However, if you are having difficulty getting your annual flu shot, we are offering Flu shots at our main Public Health Office in Hot Sulphur Springs. We also have the updated COVID-19 vaccine for adults and children who do NOT have health insurance. Please call us at 970-725-3288 then press '0' to schedule an appointment.
