Polk County Health Department Receives Adult Immunization Grant

The Polk County Health Department has received a $10,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ National Vaccine Program Office and JBS International, Inc. to increase vaccination rates among adults in Polk County, specifically the Tdap vaccination that protects against whooping cough (pertussis), diphtheria, and tetanus. Immunizations are proven and safe ways to avoid many contagious diseases, yet most Polk County adults are not up to date on their immunizations.
