Immunizations are your child's best protection now and in the future. Childhood vaccines work quickly to protect against very infectious diseases. When you immunize your child, you're protecting them against meningitis, pneumonia, paralysis, deafness, seizures, brain damage, cancer or even death.
VCH offers free immunization clinics for children, starting at age four, who are entering kindergarten in the fall.
Keep a copy of your child's immunization records in a safe place and take it with you each time.
