In Vermont mosquito season begins in spring, but does not typically pose a health risk until the summer months. Take precautions against mosquito bites to protect yourself from mosquito-borne diseases. 

Children should begin receiving vaccines within the first few months of life.

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.
