An additional vaccine, Gardasil, also protects against specific cancers. The Harrison County Health Department provides all recommended immunizations per the CDC guidelines for children under the age of 19.
Being updated on immunizations protects the individual and anyone who is not able to be completely immunized including infants and those with compromised immune systems.
All adults should be vaccinated against:
