Make sure your baby has all the necessary immunizations to keep them healthy!!

National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW), set for April 26 - May 3, 2014, is an annual observance to highlight the importance of protecting infants from vaccine-preventable diseases and celebrate the achievements of immunization programs and their partners in promoting healthy communities.

2014 marks the 20th anniversary of NIIW.  Since 1994, hundreds of communities across the United States have joined together to celebrate the critical role vaccination plays in protecting our children, communities and public health.

The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have released new provisional recommendations for the Tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (Tdap) vaccine for pregnant women.  All pregnant women should receive a dose of Tdap vaccine during each pregnancy or immediately postpartum, regardless of the patient's prior history of receiving Tdap.

 


 


 

The Milam County Health Department is open until 6:00 pm on the first Monday of every month.
