Vaccines are responsible for the control of many infectious diseases that once were common – polio, measles, diphtheria, whooping cough, German measles, mumps, tetanus and Haemophilus influenza B.
While these diseases are near a record low in the United States, the viruses and bacteria that cause them still exist. Even diseases that are nearly nonexistent in this country are only a plane ride away.
Once contracted, these diseases can be passed on to people who are not protected. To help prevent disease, your county health department offers immunization services for infants, children, adolescents and adults.
