Time to update your Child’s Vaccinations!
Could your child be missing a vaccination? It is vital that children are kept current on their immunizations. A child's immune system is more vulnerable than that of most adults, and without vaccinations, many children would suffer or even die from the severe effects of diseases such as measles, pertussis and influenza.
Plus, the new school year will soon begin and it is a state requirement that children are current on their vaccinations to enter. Contact the Pickens County Health Department at 706-253-2821 or private physician to find out which vaccinations your child may need.
Also, many local health care providers and county health departments send follow-up immunization reminders to parents. Make sure your child's health care provider has your current contact information so you will receive these timely reminders!
