Immunization Clinic 

Why immunization is important to your health
The Stephenson County Health Department Immunization Clinic provides recommended childhood and adult vaccines. Our low cost immunization program offers a range of childhood and adult vaccines. 

Why Immunize/Vaccinate?

Immunizations are one of public health's greatest achievements. Diseases that were once deadly, such as polio and measles, are now mostly eradicated. Unfortunately, thousands of people each year die from vaccine-preventable diseases in the United States. Immunizations are a critical component to keeping our community safe and healthy.

Some diseases (like polio and diphtheria) are becoming very rare in the U.S. Of course, they are becoming rare largely because we have been vaccinating against them for decades. Unless we eliminate the disease completely, it is important to keep immunizing. Even if there are only a few cases of disease today, if we take away the protection given by vaccination, more and more people will be infected and will spread disease to others. We risk undoing the progress we have made over the years. Watch the video below to learn how herd immunity works!
