A Shield of Protection
What you do matters! Getting immunized throughout your lifetime protects you, the people you love and our community against harmful diseases.
Diseases like Polio, Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Pertussis (Whooping Cough), Hepatitis, Meningitis are not a thing of the past. These serious and deadly diseases can be prevented by immunizations. When people are not immunized in a community it creates a crack in the shield of immunity that immunizations provide. When this happens it leaves infants, the elderly, and those with low immunity exposed to dangerous diseases. Simply put: Immunizations Work!
Talk to your doctor or call the Immunizations Clinic at 828-250-5096 with any questions you might have about immunizations or to find vaccination records.
Getting immunized is easy! Our Buncombe County Health and Human Services Immunization Clinic is located at 40 Coxe Avenue in downtown Asheville (located across from the bus station).
