August is National Immunization Awareness Month
Posting Date: 08/03/2014

Bowling Green, Oh – It’s that time of year when kids are going back to school and many parents are starting to think about getting shots (also called vaccinations or immunizations) for their children. Immunizations aren’t just for children. We all need immunizations throughout our lifetime to help protect us from serious diseases. To help keep our community safe, Wood County Health District is proudly participating in National Immunization Awareness Month.

Shots can prevent serious diseases like measles, mumps, pertussis (whooping cough), meningitis, tetanus, varicella (chicken pox), the flu and many other diseases. WCHD Epidemiologist Nikki Brue advises, “With recent

outbreaks of mumps and measles in central Ohio, there is no better time to stress the importance of vaccination. Prevention is the most effective way to protect yourself and your family from these vaccine-preventable diseases.”

The Wood County Health District offers immunizations from 8:30 – 4:30 pm on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, and immunizations are offered at satellite clinics from 9:30 am -12:30 pm in North Baltimore on the first Thursday of each month, in Perrysburg on the third Tuesday of each month and in Northwood on the 4th Tuesday for each month. It is important to schedule early as appointments fill up quickly.

Everyone age 6 months and older needs to get a flu shot every year. Other shots work best when they are given at certain ages. It’s important to know which shots you need and when to get them.

  • If you have a child age 6 or younger, find out which shots your child needs.
