Recommended vaccines are not necessary for school enrollment, but are a wonderful opportunity for you to protect your child from the devastating effects of certain vaccine-preventable diseases
Gardasil (HPV) --- Genital Human Papillomavirus is the most common sexually transmitted virus in the United States. This vaccine is recommended for both boys and girls beginning at age 11. HPV can cause cervical cancer in women and genital warts in both men and women. More than half of sexually active men and women are infected with HPV at some time in their lives. It is a 3 dose series.
Hepatitis A---This is a serious liver disease caused by the Hepatitis A virus(HAV). It is usually spread by close personal contact and sometimes by eating food or drinking water containing HAV. A person who has Hepatitis A can easily pass the disease to others within the same household.
Please take this opportunity to check your child's immunization record to see if he/she is up to date
We often receive questions about travel vaccines. The best thing to do is review your current record and then go to the center for disease control website. www.cdc.gov
Look under travel and you will find a list of recommended vaccines for the country to which you are going to travel along with lots of other good information on things you should pack.
The 2 most common recommended vaccines are Hepatitis A and Typhoid. We have these available here at the health department. Please call to make an appointment or call with any questions you may have after reviewing this information.
