TCHSA Immunizations

Goal

Our goal is to prevent illness in our community by providing immunizations and education regarding vaccine-preventable diseases.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), “Immunization currently averts an estimated 2 to 3 million deaths every year. An additional 1.5 million deaths could be avoided, however, if global vaccination coverage improves.”
