Our Immunization Public Health Nurse works closely with local families and medical practices to increase immunization rates in our area for infants, children, adolescents and adults. We help providers communicate with families about vaccines for children and work to ensure pregnant women have had a Tdap vaccine, which protects against tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (whooping cough). We also support vaccination for anyone who spends a lot of time with a newborn, including extended families and childcare providers.
The St. Albans local health office offers monthly immunization clinics at no charge for people who are under 65 years old and uninsured, experiencing significant barriers to access, or a patient of a medical practice that cannot receive vaccines from the Vermont Vaccines for Children & Adults program.
