The Florida Department of Health reminds you that your best defense against preventable diseases is vaccination.  Vaccines help develop the body’s ability to fight germs, which cause certain infectious diseases. 

Measles, mumps, rubella, pertussis, diphtheria, tetanus, polio, varicella, pneumococcal disease, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, influenza, meningococcal and Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) are all preventable by vaccine. 

These common childhood and adult diseases are easy to spread from one person to another.  They are particularly dangerous to very young children who have low resistance to infection, and are more likely to develop serious problems such as deafness, retardation, brain and spinal cord damage and, occasionally, death.

Community members are advised to follow vaccination schedules based upon the appropriate age group for when the dosage is most effective.

Cost for Vaccinations 

Uninsured, Medicaid, and private insurance accepted.

Cash, checks and credit card payments accepted.

Vaccine Safety 

The Florida Department of Health continually monitors vaccine research and safety concerns.

It is important to note that, to date, there is not any scientific evidence that vaccines cause:

  • Asthma
  • Autism
  • Juvenile diabetes
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Sudden infant death syndrome

Florida SHOTS 

Florida SHOTS (State Health Online Tracking System) is a free, statewide, centralized online immunization registry that helps parents, health care providers, and schools keep track of immunization records. Ask your health care provider for a personal identification number so you can view your child’s immunization history and print a copy of your child’s Florida Certification of Immunization (DH Form 680).

For more information visit the Florida SHOTS website. You can also call the Florida SHOTS Help Desk at 1-877-888-7468.

Vaccines aren’t just for children; they protect adults from diseases like pneumonia, tetanus and the flu.

Vaccine recommendations for adults include the annual seasonal flu vaccine and the tetanus shot every ten years. In addition, certain vaccines for adults are necessary based on factors such as age, lifestyle, health conditions, occupation and travel. Vaccines are particularly important for those with chronic conditions, who can develop extra problems from vaccine-preventable diseases.

Adults can experience severe illness from childhood diseases, so it’s important to know if you are up-to-date. During each routine checkup, talk with your health care provider to make sure you have all age-appropriate vaccinations.

If you are in need of or are behind in getting vaccinated, schedule an appointment at one of our Immunization Centers.
