Immunization is one of the most effective means available for protecting the health of your child and the health of our community. The Clackamas County Public Health Division encourages parents to:
- Keep an updated record of your child’s immunizations.
- Remember to update your child’s school or child care facility anytime your child receives a new shot.
- Keep your child current on their immunizations. Kids need 80% of their shots by the age of 2.

Clackamas Public Health Division works with Clackamas Health Centers to provide immunizations for people in need. Clackamas Health Centers offer immunizations at a low cost and have discount opportunities based on household income. Nobody will be denied service based on the inability to pay.
Staff will make a plan for your child's immunization needs and make sure you receive reminders when your child is due for another immunization. If your child misses an appointment or is behind on their immunizations it is not necessary to start over. Your medical provider will continue the shots from where they left off.

Immunization Schedules for Children
The recommended immunization schedule is designed to protect infants and children early in life, when they are most vulnerable and before they are exposed to potentially life-threatening diseases. Check the schedules before the the age or age range when each vaccine or series of shots is recommended. See your child's doctor with any questions.
Immunization Schedules for Adults
You never outgrow the need for vaccines. The specific immunizations you need as an adult are determined by factors such as your age, lifestyle, high-risk conditions, type and locations of travel, and previous immunizations.
Clackamas County Health Centers do not administer travel vaccinations. We recommend checking with your health plan for travel vaccination coverage and clinics.
