Childhood Immunizations - Our Mission
The purpose of Childhood Immunizations is to provide immunizations to children age 0 years up to their 19th birthday and education to parents, guardians, and day care and school staff to reduce/eliminate the transmission of vaccine preventable diseases.
Immunizations have proven to be the most effective way to stop the spread of disease. Here in Maricopa County your child from age 0 years up to their 19th birthday is encouraged to receive childhood immunizations from either his/her health care provider or from one of the Maricopa County Department of Public Health childhood immunization clinics.
Vaccine Safety Concerns? The American Academy of Pediatrics provides extensive research studies to address your concerns.
There are federal funding changes to how vaccine is funded and administered.
What does this mean?
