Immunizations keep our community healthy
  • Immunizations protect you, your family
    and our community.
  • Mesa County Health Department Public
    Health Clinic offers adult,
    child and travel immunizations
    .
  • Last year, MCHD staff administered
    nearly 1,000 flu immunizations to citizens at local businesses and administered
    back-to-school immunizations to nearly 200 Mesa County children over a two day
    open clinic period.
  • Students entering kindergarten must be
    up-to-date on all required immunizations for attending school.
    • This includes the immunization for
      Tetanus, Diphtheria and Pertussis (DTaP or Tdap).
    • For sixth graders, this is an
      additional requirement, even if the child was current on all immunizations in
      elementary school.
  • MCHD will hold two back-to-school
    immunization clinics July 13 and 14 from 8 – 4 p.m.
    • Appointments for these clinics will be
      walk-in only.
    • Bring a copy of your child’s
      immunization record for faster service.
