Child Immunization Program
Vaccines have contributed to a significant reduction in many childhood diseases, such as diphtheria, polio, measles, and whooping cough. It is now rare for American children to experience the devastating effects of these illnesses. Infant deaths due to childhood diseases have nearly disappeared in the United States and other countries with high vaccination coverage. But the germs that cause vaccine-preventable diseases and death still exist, and can be passed on to people who are not protected by vaccines.
The Central Michigan District Health Department in conjunction with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services provides age appropriate vaccinations and health education. Vaccines are available for all ages including flu vaccinations. We offer vaccinations to those with and without medical/insurance coverage. No immunizations are kept from children based on the ability or inability to pay.
