Immunization Awareness

We all need vaccinations and immunizations to protect ourselves and others from serious diseases like the flu, measles, and pneumonia. Talk to your doctor or nurse to make sure that everyone in your family gets the shots they need to stay healthy and happy.

Visit the MaineHealth Childhood Immunization page to learn about reasons to vaccinate, vaccination schedules, and vaccine resources near you. Also, be sure to check out the recommended vaccination schedules specifically recommended for 0-6 years, 7-18 years, and adults.  

The health educators at the Learning Resource Center are happy to help. They provide trusted & reliable health information and connect people to local resources in the community. Connect with a health educator today! Be well, be well informed.
