Home > Vaccines
Vaccines are a type of medicine that prevent a person from getting sick.
Some vaccines are given by poking a needle into the skin (these type of vaccines are called "shots"), some vaccines are sprayed into the nose (like some types of flu vaccines), and some vaccines are eaten (like the Rotavirus vaccine).
Vaccines are a safe and effective way to keep you, your family, and your community healthy.
The Grays Harbor County Public Health and Social Services Department's clinic gives some vaccines to adults, but not to children. We would be happy to help you find a health care provider that gives vaccines to children.
Call (360) 532-8631 to get more information.
The Washington State Department of Health provides parents and guardians access to their family members' immunization records at MyIR.net. Go to MyIR.net or call (866) 397-0337 to begin the registration process.
Childhood Vaccine Program
The Washington State Childhood Vaccine Program provides vaccine to all kids less than 19 years of age in Washington. The program uses a combination of federal and state funds to purchase vaccines and distributes them to health care providers. If you are a health care provider interested in participating in this program, email the Washington State Department of Health at email@example.com.
