Health department encouraging vaccines during National Infant Immunization Week

BOWLING GREEN: Parents should begin making plans now for vaccines that their children will need when they return to school in the fall.

Physician offices often become busy with immunization appointments, so Wood County Health Department is encouraging parents during National Infant Immunization Week (April 23-29) to begin making their vaccine plans now.

Vaccines are among the most successful and cost-effective public health tools for preventing disease and death. They help protect vaccinated individuals as well as entire communities by preventing and reducing the spread of infectious diseases.

Giving babies their recommended immunizations by age 2 and throughout childhood is the best way to protect them from many serious diseases, such as whooping cough and measles. Parents should ask their child’s doctor about what vaccines are recommended for their age.

Wood County Health Department provides immunizations to children ages 0 through 18 whose doctors do not offer them. Appointments are available from 9 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. on May 8 and June 4, and from 1-3:30 p.m. on May 23 and June 20.

For more information or to make an appointment, call 419-352-8402. Most insurance and Medicaid are accepted, and the cost without insurance is $20 per vaccine. If you or your child does not have a medical provider, Wood County Community Health Center is accepting new patients. Call 419-354-9049 to schedule an appointment.
