Vaccination information

Vaccination is the best way to protect your child's health

Parents are responsible for the well-being of their children, including protecting them from illness caused by diseases that are vaccine-preventable. Learn about vaccination and why it is important to your child's health.

Parents agree that feeding and sleeping schedules are important to help keep children healthy. The same goes for childhood vaccinations. Vaccinating your children is the best way to keep them safe from many serious and potentially deadly diseases. You can help protect your children by getting them vaccinated on time and keeping their shots up-to-date.

Here is “A Parent’s Guide to Vaccination” booklets for free in many languages.

Help prevent the spread of germs!

posted Feb 7, 2018, 8:12 AM by Margarita Ziroldo

Colds and flus can spread through a workplace quickly, especially if people are working close together. It is important that everyone does their part to avoid spreading illnesses.


Germ-covered surfaces are all around us. Help prevent the spread of germs by washing your hands with soap and water for at least 15 seconds, or use alcohol-based hand sanitizer and by covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your sleeve.


If you have a fever, coughing or sneezing (from cold/flu, not allergies) or anything else that is likely to be infectious, help prevent the spread of germs by staying home until the symptoms have passed and you feel well enough to go back to work or to school.
