The CDC's Website has the new 2013 Child & Adolescent Immunization Schedules
for persons aged 0-18 years, and an Adult Schedule for 19 years and older.
Immunizations help protect your child's health. Children who are not immunized are at risk for diseases which can sometimes be fatal. Michigan law also requires that children entering school be completely immunized. However, it is important that children be immunized long before they start school, while they are still infants. It is also important that children are immunized on time (see schedule below) and completely to be fully protected from disease.
Childhood immunizations and adult boosters are available to all Marquette County residents. For those who qualify for the Vaccine for Children Program, there is only a small administration fee. Miscellaneous adult vaccines may also be available at a low cost to eligible individuals: Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, HPV, MMR, Tdap, Pneumonia and flu vaccines. Rabies vaccine is available for exposed persons by referral. For information about what to do if you have been bitten by an animal, click here.
Immunizations are offered 4 days per week by appointment. Immunizations may be coordinated with WIC and Family Planning appointments. Selected clinics are also offered at schools and various community sites to increase immunization levels.
Please visit the CDC's Vaccine Preventable Childhood Diseases Website to find out more about why it is so important to have your children vaccinated!
