Immunization Changes Fact Sheet

Benton County Public Health knows that immunization is one of the best weapons against many serious diseases.  Although some vaccine-preventable diseases have become very rare because of vaccines, outbreaks still occur. This is why ensuring children receive immunizations on time is very important to their overall health- in addition to the health of their friends, classmates, and the community.

Adults need vaccinations too. To learn more about what immunization you or your children may need, visit the MN Department of Health website.
