 Immunizations

WHAT ARE IMMUNIZATIONS?

* Immunizations are medicines children get when they are very young. They protect children from getting many serious diseases
* Immunizations are administered by Iowa Department of Public Health protocol.

WHY ARE THEY IMPORTANT?

* Many years ago, children often got sick with serious diseases. Many died or were left with permanent damage
* Today, your baby has a good chance of staying healthy if you immunize on time every time

WHEN SHOULD YOUR CHILD BE IMMUNIZED?
* Immunizations work best when babies are very young, before they are exposed to the germs that cause diseases
* Your child will visit the doctor or clinic every 4-8 weeks until all immunizations are finished

CHICKASAW COUNTY PUBLIC HEALTH Requires that before children receive their immunizations at our clinic, they visit their doctor for a well check first with the parent bringing in the permission slip for the shots to be given.
