Adult immunizations

The Health Department offers residents influenza and pneumonia vaccination. Each year, the Health Department sponsors a number of public clinics. Private clinics can be arranged through the Public Health Nurse for large or small organizations or businesses.

Residents with disabilities unable to be vaccinated at a physician's office or clinic can be vaccinated by scheduling a home visit with the Public Health Nurse.
