IMMUNIZATION CLINIC FAQ’S

Why is it important to immunize?

 Vaccinations are administered to protect clients from vaccine preventable diseases. These vaccinations are developed to reduce the risk of infection by developing immunity to the disease over a period of time. The mission of the Immunization Clinic at Cobb & Douglas Public Health is to ensure that immunization rates remain high and vaccine preventable diseases remain low by making sure all clients receive the vaccines they need.

What are the risks of not getting vaccinated?

Clients who opt-out of getting vaccinated, not only put themselves at risk of getting vaccine preventable diseases, but also put other individuals (who are unable to be vaccinated) at risk for getting vaccine preventable diseases. Vaccine preventable diseases can be dangerous, and in some cases deadly. For more information on the importance of vaccinations, please click here.
