What We Do

Our clinic is staffed with highly-skilled practitioners and support staff who are committed to ensuring quality, strictly confidential health care.

Immunizations protect not only yourself, but those around you. We offer adult, child, travel, and flu immunizations, as well as immunization counseling services.

Going on a trip? Let our team of medical professionals help you prepare with education and immunizations! Mesa County Public Health Clinic staff members are the experts when it comes to finding out which immunizations you need for your trip and when you should get them.

The number of immunizations you’ll need is dependent on a few things –

  • Where you’re going,
  • What activities you’ll be doing, and
  • What the country requires versus recommends.

Our staff will talk with you about these factors and discuss an appropriate immunization plan with you. Keep in mind, it’s better to contact us sooner rather than later, because some immunizations need to be given over the course of several appointments. You can also learn about what you might need for your trip on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Travel website.

Your health is our priority – whether you’re in Mesa County or not. Call (970) 248-6900 today to learn more!

Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS)

About VAERS

The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) is a national early warning system to detect possible safety problems in U.S.-licensed vaccines.  More information for patients and providers can be found here.

Objectives of VAERS

The primary objectives of VAERS are to:

  • Detect new, unusual, or rare vaccine adverse events;
  • Monitor increases in known adverse events;
  • Identify potential patient risk factors for particular types of adverse events;
  • Assess the safety of newly licensed vaccines;
  • Determine and address possible reporting clusters (e.g., suspected localized [temporally or geographically] or product-/batch-/lot-specific adverse event reporting);
  • Recognize persistent safe-use problems and administration errors;
  • Provide a national safety monitoring system that extends to the entire general population for response to public health emergencies, such as a large-scale pandemic influenza vaccination program.
