Information for You

Several infectious diseases are either not seen in Vermont, or are no longer a serious threat here. But even rare diseases require attention due to the possibility of importation from people traveling abroad.

How are we doing in our efforts to promote healthy pregnancies, breastfeeding and the health of mothers and babies?

Are babies and young children getting the screenings they need to detect and treat health problems early?

Becoming insured is the first step in being able to access health care and screenings for children and youth.

You already know that breastfeeding is best for you and your baby. What you may not know is that learning to breastfeed can take time, patience and practice.

All babies born in Vermont have the opportunity to receive a newborn screening test to check for rare but serious diseases which may not be apparent at birth.
