Measles

Measles is a highly contagious disease. It can be serious for young children.

New York State Immunization Information System (NYSIIS)

What is NYSIIS? 

NYSIIS is a private, computerized system that contains immunization (Shot) records and allows authorized users access to a person’s shot record.  

Strict federal and State laws protect the privacy of your personal information in the registry.

In New York State, Health Care Providers are required to report all immunizations given to anyone less than 19 years of age, but anyone over the age of 19 can request for their immunization records to be put into NYSIIS.  You just need to ask your doctor and give them your consent to add your records to NYSIIS.

Why should I Participate in NYSIIS?

Your Doctor can use NYSIIS to be sure that you get the needed immunizations (Shots), and proper medical treatment is given when needed

There will be a permanent and easily accessible record of your immunizations (Shots).

Ask your Doctor to enter any adult immunizations (Shots) you get into the New York State Immunization Information System. (NYSIIS)

Vaccine-Preventable Disease Outbreak Response

In the event of a disease outbreak, Washington County Public Health will continue to have publicly funded vaccine available regardless of insurance status.

Hepatitis B

Hepatitis B is a liver infection caused by the Hepatitis B virus (HBV). Hepatitis B is transmitted when blood, semen, or another body fluid from a person infected with the Hepatitis B virus enters the body of someone who is not infected. This can happen through sexual contact; sharing needles, syringes, or other drug-injection equipment; or from mother to baby at birth. For some people, hepatitis B is an acute, or short-term, illness but for others, it can become a long-term, chronic infection. Risk for chronic infection is related to age at infection: approximately 90% of infected infants become chronically infected, compared with 2%–6% of adults. Chronic Hepatitis B can lead to serious health issues, like cirrhosis or liver cancer. The best way to prevent Hepatitis B is by getting vaccinated.
