Immunization and Vaccinations


August is National Immunization Awareness Month  
The Board of Supervisors proclaimed August Immunization Awareness Month in Fairfax County.

The diseases that vaccines prevent can be dangerous, or even deadly. Vaccines reduce the risk of infection by working with the body's natural defenses to help it safely develop immunity to disease and are proven to be safe and effective. Protect yourself and your community. Make sure your family's immunizations are up-to-date.

Vaccinations are available through your health care provider and the Fairfax County Health Department clinics.
