August is National Immunization Awareness Month. The Health Department is reminding parents to beat the rush and get children vaccinated before school starts. Vaccines protect children, preteens and teens from 16 serious and potentially life-threatening diseases. Making sure your child is current on their vaccines will help keep them healthy and in school.

•Walk-in hours Monday: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
