Attention parents: 

**Does your child have all of the immunizations that he/she needs? **

Immunizations are available by appointment only.

Please call (734) 544-6700 to schedule.

Did you know vaccines prevent disease in the people who receive them and protect those who come into contact with unvaccinated individuals? 

Check out your options for getting you and your family protected against influenza.

Vaccines available for children 6 weeks through 18 years

To prevent the spread of vaccine preventable diseases, the Michigan School Immunization Law requires that children receive a series of immunizations and boosters before entry into schools, child care centers and family child care homes

Don't wait until the last minute! Does your child need to have their immunizations updated?
