Vaccination rates are extremely low in the communities served by Sunshine Community Health Center.
As a result, our communities are extremely vulnerable to vaccine-preventable diseases. Due to the low rates of vaccination, there are community members who are at increased risk of complications from vaccine preventable diseases including long-term disability and death.
Who is at highest risk? Our infants, elders and those with impaired immune systems due to conditions such as diabetes, asthma, and cancer to name a few.Continued attention to keeping vaccinations up to date is vital to ensuring a healthy community.
If you choose not to vaccinate your child, understand the risks and responsibilities.

Vaccination: “An act of love and protection for our communities.”
