We are taking steps to reduce the number of vaccine-preventable diseases in our community by increasing the number of people who have had all of their recommended vaccines. Vaccines are made available in this local office according to the list of CDC recommended immunizations.
The Barre Local Health Office offers a monthly immunization clinic at no charge for people who are under 65 years old and unisured or a patient of a medical practice that cannot receive vaccine from the Vermont Vaccines for Children & Adults program.

We help local medical practices increase their immunization rates by using a quality improvement program known as AFIX. We discuss the practice's immunization rates, facilitate review of evidence-based strategies, and support development of plans to increase vaccination coverage in our communities.

Each year the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the CDC Foundation recognize an individual from each of the 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia for their outstanding work in the area of childhood immunizations.
