Immunizations

Immunizations

Why are health shots important?

We all want to feel good and be healthy. Most of all we want our children to be healthy, so we are always looking for ways to protect them and hopefully keep them from getting sick. Shots (your doctor or nurse may call them immunizations or vaccinations) are one way adults and especially children help their bodies fight disease. CareOregon covers the cost of these shots for children and adults.

Your age and health will help your doctor decide which shots you should have. Remember, if you have children in school, it will be very important to keep their shots up to date. CareOregon wants you to work with your doctor to make sure you and your family gets the best health care.
