It’s time to take a stand and protect our communities.
Promote healthy communities where families can live, work and learn without fear of exposure to preventable diseases.
Provide evidence-based resources families need to make informed choices. Dispel common myths that threaten the health and safety of all Oklahoma families.
Give a voice to immuno-compromised children and those whose lives are at risk when those who are eligible to be immunized are not.
Vaccines are among the most effective ways to protect kids, families and communities against serious diseases. Learn more about kindergarten immunization rates in your area using this interactive map.
