What shots does my child need and where can I get them?
The CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommended immunization schedule describes what vaccines children should receive and when (link: http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/schedules/downloads/child/0-18yrs-child-combined-schedule.pdf). Information about school and child care requirements is also available. (link: https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/cdphe/board-health-rule-school-required-immunization ). If you have questions about the recommendations and requirements, talk to your child’s physician or call 719-655-2533 to talk to the Public Health Nurse about your child’s immunizations. Public Health offers regular childhood immunizations for children who are covered by Medicaid or do not have insurance that covers vaccination. Call for more information.
