GREAT BAY, Sint Maarten (DCOMM) – The Collective Prevention Services (CPS) would like to inform parents and guardians about its next Vaccination Open House which is scheduled for Saturday, June 10.
The June 10 Open House will be held at the Vineyard Office Park in Philipsburg from 9.00am to 4.00pm for children between 0-17 years old.
Parents and guardians are asked to bring their child’s vaccination record/book to the Open House. There will also be presentations from 10.00am to 1.30pm.
Vaccines help your immune system fight more than 20 dangerous diseases. From the time we’re born, vaccines offer protection to help individuals stay healthy throughout their entire lives.
CPS, a department of the Ministry of Public Health, Social Development and Labour, is holding its second Open House under the banner of the Vaccination Week of the Americas (VWA) 2017. The first Open House took place last month.
Evidence continues to show that vaccination is one of the safest, most cost-effective ways to prevent diseases and death.
Those who need additional information about the Open House can call CPS at 542-2078 or 542-3003.
