Questions About Immunizations?

We realize that there are many questions about immunizations that you hear from family, friends and co-workers. Below we have several science-based resources that we encourage you to review as you learn more about the importance of vaccines, community immunity and keeping our most vulnerable safe and well. Please feel free to email us at if you have any additional questions.

For a quick resource, we also have immunization schedules across the lifespan for you to review and download. We encourage you to talk to your health care professional about any questions you may have about immunizations for yourself or your family members.
