Immunization Center

  • General Overview

    Also known as vaccination, immunization is the process or procedure by which a subject (person, animal, or plant) is rendered immune, or resistant to a specific disease.
  • Special Topics

    Adults
    Gardasil™ has been approved for use by females aged 9-26. Studies show that the vaccine offers protection against HPV types 16 and 18, which cause 70% of cervical cancers.
    Older adults are particularly susceptible to some of the infections that can be prevented by vaccination.
    Children
    Childhood vaccines are generally very safe. In the United States, vaccines have resulted in record-low levels of certain childhood diseases.
    Travel
    Travel health clinics provide an essential service to those bound for foreign destinations—whether you need inoculations before your trip, antibiotics to take along with you, or follow-up care after your return. So, if your vacation checklist includes a passport, don’t leave home without visiting a travel health clinic.
