Who should be vaccinated?
- Healthcare Professionals
Vaccines are among the most successful and cost-effective public health tools available for preventing disease and death. They not only help protect
individuals but also help protect entire communities by preventing and reducing the spread of infectious diseases.
Immunizations are given at 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 12 months, 18 months of age, kindergarten, 6th grade, and 12th grade.
Infants are protected against 14 vaccine preventable diseases before age two.
Vaccine preventable diseases are at an all-time low in the U.S. However, these diseases still exist and continued vaccination is necessary to protect
everyone from potential outbreaks.
Please call to request an Immunization Record -- 618-283-1044
Shot records are available upon request. The fee for printed copies are 50¢. They may choose to have them faxed to a school (with signed consent),
physician or may choose to pick them up at the health department.

ADULT VACCINES: If you're NOT asking for the vaccines you need, you just might be asking for something you really don't want - like a serious infection
or long-term health problem. To find out more about adult vaccines, take the CDC Adult Vaccine Quiz.
Vaccines are a safe and effective way of preventing disease and are recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics, The Advisory Committee on
Immunization Practices, The American Academy of Family Physicians, and The Centers for Disease Control. To find excellent web sites with more
specific detailed information and articles on immunizations go to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention Vaccine Website.
