WARRENSBURG, MISSOURI (May 7, 2017) – Johnson County Community Health Services (JCCHS) Public Health staff works with our community partners to help ensure that populations are being properly immunized and are receiving the correct vaccines at the recommended times and intervals for different age groups.
State officials with the Vaccines for Children (VFC) program, which is funded through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and monitored by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services audited JCCHS and its administration of VFC immunizations.
Their findings indicate that the Public Health staff at JCCHS is doing an outstanding job making sure the children in our community are immunized properly and at correct intervals. Audit scores gave JCCHS a high ranking of 92%, a score among the best in the state.
“Making sure that children are receiving the proper vaccines, at the proper times and at the proper intervals is something that our staff and community partners take pride in and really work hard to ensure” said Ronda Davis, RN, public health coordinator.
Future goals for the public health program and staff are to maintain this high level of immunization rates and continued attention to detail to ensure the best possible outcomes for our communities in regards to proper immunization of our populations.
