Immunization Program

Welcome to our Immunization Services!

Remember to Take 3 actions to fight flu this season. 1. Get a Vaccine in shot or mist form. 2. Wash your hands. 3. Take antivirals if prescribed by your doctor if you get the flu. 


Why Immunize?

Immunizations have proven to be the most effective way to stop the spread of disease. Here in Gila County your child from age 0 years up to their 19th birthday is encouraged to receive childhood immunizations from either his/her health care provider or from the Gila County Public Health Department.


We offer immunizations in two locations:

Childhood Immunizations

Immunizations are administered by Registered Nurses at both the Globe and Payson offices. Your child will need to begin their immunizations at 2 months of age and we would be delighted to help you get those started. Your child’s “baby shots” should be completed by 2 years of age.
