The Public Health Clinics work to protect individuals and the community from the spread and complications of disease through their immunization services. The clinic is committed to providing quality health information, education and services.
Child & Adult Immunizations
Vaccines or "shots" have been available in the United States since the 1950s. Immunization programs throughout the country have made great strides in reducing the rate of vaccine-preventable diseases by immunizing children. The health department's goal is to improve access to immunizations so that you or your child receives all of the vaccine doses needed to be protected from a serious illness.
Under the immigration laws of the United States, a foreign national who applies for an immigrant visa abroad, or who seeks to adjust status to a permanent resident while in the United States, is required to receive vaccinations to prevent certain diseases.
Before traveling abroad, a travel assessment by a trained clinic nurse can provide information and help you identify the best ways to prevent travel-related illnesses. Butte County Public Health offers information about health-related risks while traveling abroad.
