National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW) is an annual observance to highlight the importance of protecting infants from vaccine-preventable diseases and celebrate the achievements of immunization programs and their partners in promoting healthy communities. This year, NIIW will be held April 22-29, 2017.
Most parents choose the safe, proven protection of vaccines. Giving babies the recommended immunizations by age two is the best way to protect them from 14 serious childhood diseases, like whooping cough and measles. Parents are encouraged to talk to their child’s doctor to ensure that their baby is up-to-date on immunizations.
Carver County Public Health offers immunizations for children and adults. Some vaccines are supplied by federal and state programs, and are offered for a limited time at low-cost to persons who are eligible. A $21.22 fee is requested for the administration of each vaccination, but no one will be turned away if they are unable to pay.
