    A Message About the Importance of Immunizing Children


    NYSDOH regulations now follow the Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommended immunization guidelines for those immunizations required by Public Health Law 2164. ACIP is composed of medical and public health experts who develop recommendations on how to use vaccines to control diseases in the US, and they are responsible for making vaccine recommendations to the Center forDisease Control and Prevention (CDC)

    Monroe County Department of Health Immunization Clinics Scheduled
    Now is the time to make sure your child has all of their required shots for school entry.  Failure to do so could both expose them to illness and result in their being kept out of school (which can then result in missed work time for parents). The child's doctor is the best place to get vaccinated.  If they can't get you in or if they don't have the vaccinations you need, plan to attend one of our clinics.
