Immunization program

According to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), immunizations have reduced and even eliminated many infectious diseases that once usually killed or harmed people of all ages. However, the viruses and bacteria that cause these diseases and death still exist. It is important for infants, children and adults to stay up-to-date on immunizations to be protected from these diseases. Placer County’s Immunization Program offers various services in efforts of ensuring residents stay up-to-date on immunizations for fullest protection against vaccine-preventable diseases.
