Children start getting Immunizations just after they are born so their body can start building immunity to dangerous diseases. The vaccines given to babies contains germs, but they are weakened so the child doesn't get ill. The weakened germs is why more than one dose of some vaccines is needed. Children need to build up enough antibodies from the vaccines to be able to fight off disease.
Keeping up to date immunization records for your family is important. You will need your child's immunization information to register them for child care, school, camps and other activities. Scott County Public Health can provide immunization records and answer any questions you have about vaccines.
