Immunizations are an important investment during every child's
preschool, school-age and teen years that help assure children
the rewards of a healthy life and prevent serious problems.
The Immunization Program of the Marion County Health Department
provides immunization services to children, adolescents and adults
through regularly scheduled clinics and targeted community outreach
programs. The program assists schools in monitoring immunization
status of students and provides tracking and follow-up of high
risk pre-school children. Adult immunizations are available for
individuals involved in high-risk lifestyles and occupations,
as well as immigrants. The Immunization Program
offers pneumococcal and annual flu shots for older adults.
The Marion County Health Department's Immunization Program
also provides leadership for the Indianapolis
Immunization Coalition. The Coalition is a group of businesses and organizations working together to promote education and community action on the necessity of timely childhood immunizations. Through special events and the development of educational programs and materials the Coalition encourages cooperation with many different partners at the grassroots level to create a community that recognizes, demands and helps build systems that maintain childhood immunizations as a priority.
