For adults, we offer tetanus, pneumonia, flu, hepatitis B and hepatitis A vaccinations. Adults need tetanus boosters every 10 years.

Why is childhood immunization important?
Because it will protect your child against diseases that can hurt, cripple or kill!

Before vaccines, parents in the United States could expect that every year:
Polio would paralyze 10,000 children.
Rubella (German measles) would cause birth defects and mental retardation in as many as 20,000 newborns.
Measles would infect about 4 million children, killing 3,000.
Diphtheria would be one of the most common causes of death in school-aged children.
A bacterium called Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) would cause meningitis in 15,000 children, leaving many with permanent brain damage.
Pertussis (whooping cough) would kill 8,000 children, most of whom were under the age of one.
