Everyone is welcome at these clinics. Vaccinations will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Parents should bring a copy of each child's immunization record if possible.
Contra Costa Immunization Program and Women, Infant and Children Program are partnering to get infants, toddlers and parents immunized. This clinic is a great way for families to provide their children with the necessary vaccines. There currently are vaccines to protect against many serious diseases, such as the measles, whooping cough, causes of pneumonia and others.
