Are your children ready to go back to school?

Last year, Tri-County Health Department (TCHD) investigated a number of cases of whooping cough (Pertussis), mumps, and measles, all of which are preventable with vaccination.  Since 2014, TCHD has seen 955 cases of whooping cough, 30 cases of mumps and two cases of measles.

“Vaccinations are an essential way for parents to protect their children,” states John M. Douglas, Jr., MD, Executive Director of Tri-County Health Department. "Vaccines have greatly reduced infectious diseases that once routinely harmed or killed many infants, children, and adults."

TCHD is providing several Back-to-School Immunization clinics where parents can bring their children and their immunization records and prepare them for a healthy year in school.
