 Vaccines

Vaccines save lives! Getting immunized throughout your lifetime protects you, your family, your loved ones, and the community against infectious diseases. 

cd1The Immunization Program of Durham County Public Health (DCOPH) provides population-based and clinic-based immunizations.

The Immunization Branch of the NC Division of Public Health has changed the availability of certain vaccines, so we are no longer able to offer all recommended childhood vaccines or certain adult vaccines at no cost. As a result, some families will be responsible for the cost of vaccines. 

 

Children who qualify for the Vaccines for Children Program will continue to receive vaccines at no cost.

For questions about the cost of vaccines and the fee structure, or to make an appointment, please call the Immunization Clinic at (919) 560-7608.

Immunizations for Adults 

You’re never too old to protect yourself against infectious diseases. If you were vaccinated in childhood, it’s important to know that immunity decreases as you get older.

 TDaP

You may need to be re-vaccinated or receive a booster. It is now recommended that every adult should get the TDaP vaccine once if they did not receive it as an adolescent to protect against pertussis (whooping cough), and then a Td (tetanus, diphtheria) booster shot every 10 years.

1bWhen a woman is pregnant, she shares everything with her baby. That means when a pregnant woman gets vaccines, she is not just protecting herself, she is giving her baby some early protection too. The CDC recommends that a pregnant woman should get a TDaP vaccine during each pregnancy to help protect herself and her baby.

The level of pertussis antibodies decreases over time, so you should administer Tdap during every pregnancy in order to transfer the greatest number of protective antibodies to each infant.  Infants are most at risk for severe, life-threatening complications from pertussis. The Tdap vaccine should be administered during the early part of gestational weeks 27 through 36.

TDaP is especially important for anyone having close contact with a baby younger than 12 months of age.

Immunizations for Children 

Immunizations are one of the most important ways to keep your children healthy. To get the best protection for your child--make sure he or she is immunized on time and up-to-date on their immunizations. By doing so, your children will be protected against potentially life-threatening vaccine preventable diseases.  

North Carolina law requires children to be vaccinated before attending school. Please contact your child’s pediatrician or contact the immunization clinic at (919) 560-7608  if you have any questions about the vaccines requirements. 

For a complete list of vaccines recommended for infants, children, and adolescents, and adults, visit the CDC's Immunization Schedules for Everyone page.

Immunizations for Foreign Travel 

Travel exposes you to more than cultures and environments. You could also be expose to new infectious diseases.  At this time the Durham County Department of Public Health Immunization clinic does not provide travel vaccines.

The Immunization Clinic is also unable to provide recommendations for vaccines that are required for your trip out of the country.

For more information about travel vaccines, visit the CDC’s Traveler's Health page.

Vaccines such as Yellow Fever, Malaria, Typhoid and Japanese Encephalitis are not available through our Immunization Clinic.
