Immunization Action Plan
Many children become seriously ill and some die from diseases that can be prevented by vaccines.
In order to be fully protected, it is important for babies to receive all their shots by two years of age. Babies need all doses to be protected from each disease.
The goal of the Immunization Action Plan,
through collaboration with local healthcare providers, is to increase the number of children under two years old that receive all their shots on time.
