SAN ANTONIO - Since August is National Immunization Awareness Month, the Metro Health Immunization Program staff encourages you and your family to get vaccinated according to the recommended immunization schedule.

Vaccination is an important part of keeping kids healthy at every age.  

Did you know that child care facilities, preschool programs, schools and colleges are prone to disease outbreaks?

Vaccines aren't just for kids, we need them throughout our life:

  • School age children
  • Pregnant women
  • Babies and young children
  • Preteens and teens
  • Adults

Parents, make sure those vaccine records are up to date for your children.
