Before sending your kids to camp, make sure your family is up-to-date on vaccinations

Description: Three girls who are protected with up-to-date vaccinations and ready for summer fun! Find out more at www.vaccines.gov.

School will be letting out soon and, for many families, that means it’s time to get ready for camp! Make sure your whole family is up-to-date on recommended vaccines

Ask your health care provider what vaccines are recommended for you and your family. Remember to get the vaccinations in advance to give your body time to build up immunity.

Immunizations

Immunization Program

The Health Department provides recommended immunizations to children and adolescents less than 19 years of age who:

  • Do not have a provider either because the person is new to this area or are changing providers
  • Have a provider, but they do not stock State-supplied Vaccine or the specific State-supplied vaccine being requested
  • Do not have health insurance (Medicare and Provider One are considered health insurance)
  • Have health insurance but:
    • Deductible is very high
    • Insurance does not cover vaccines

If your child or adolescent meets the above criteria, please call the Immunization Program (360-676-4593) to schedule an appointment.

In addition, the Health Department Immunization Program;

  • Answers vaccine related questions from the public and private medical offices.
  • Oversees the state Vaccines for Children program in Whatcom County.
  • Distributes childhood vaccines to private medical offices and clinics.
  • Provides nurse consultation office visits and education.
