There are many vaccines now available and recommended for children today to prevent them from getting sick. Some diseases we don’t remember personally such as polio, and others, like chicken pox, we remember having ourselves as children. Vaccines prevent children today from suffering from these diseases and the serious effects these diseases can have on them.
Heart of Kansas Family Health Care participates in the Vaccines For Children (VFC) program to provide vaccines to children who may not be able to afford or may not have insurance coverage to vaccines. We provide this because we feel it is very important to protect as many children as we can.
Vaccinations available include all of the childhood vaccinations as well as flu vaccines for all ages.
