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.

Immunizations are a shield of protection for our entire community. They protect us against deadly diseases like Polio, Measles, Mumps, and Hepatitis. When more people in our communities get immunized, we have a strong shield of protection against vaccine preventable diseases. When people do not get immunized, cracks begin to form in our shield, putting infants, the elderly, and people with low immunity in danger of getting sick. Simply put- immunizations work, but it takes all of us to create a strong shield of protection in our community.

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.

Please click on the links below for more details on immunizations for yourself, your children or your family:


Bring copies of your/your child's immunization record, so staff will know which vaccines you/your child has had if they've never visited the Health Department.

You can find a copy of your vaccine records through the following:

  • Previous healthcare providers including physicians, pharmacies, and local health departments.
  • The North Carolina Immunization Registry database.
  • Your child’s school, family records such as baby books, school, and camp applications; and military records.

Records from other states and international records in other languages should be brought in.

If you are insured, please also bring your Insurance, Medicaid, Medicare, and/or HMO card.

Immunizations Work! Promotional Tools

Immunizations are so important that we felt compelled to put together a toolbox filled with materials to help get the message out that Immunizations Work! This kit has materials for health care providers, parents, schools and child care facilities to encourage a fully immunized community.
