Gage County Immunization Clinic Honored  
May, 17, 2012

The Gage County Immunization Clinic, operated by Beatrice Community Hospital and Health Center, is one of two public clinics in the state of Nebraska to be recognized in 2012 for exceeding the Immunization Healthy People 2020 goal of having at least 90 percent of children seen at the clinic completely immunized at 2 years of age.

 

There are 38 public immunization clinics in the state of Nebraska.

 

The 2012 Achievement Award was presented to the Gage County Immunization Clinic by the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services and the Nebraska Immunization Program for having 95 percent of the children the clinic sees up-to-date on their immunizations at 2 years of age.

 

Performance is measured against the National Immunization Survey and toward the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Healthy People 2020 goal of 90 percent. The NIS for 2012 has the state of Nebraska, including both private and public clinics, at 76.6 percent of 2-year-olds completely immunized. The national average rate is 70.2 percent. Immunizations required are DTaP (diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis), Polio, MMR (measles, mumps, rubella), Hib (Haemophilius influenzae type b), Hepatitis B, Varicella and Pneumococcal.

 

The Gage County Immunization Clinic is open from noon to 4 p.m. every Monday, 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. every Tuesday and noon to 4 p.m. every Thursday. The clinic is held at Parkview Conference Center, 1216 S. Eighth St. in Beatrice. Appointments are required by calling 402-228-8513. Donations are welcome but not required.

 

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Healthy People initiative identifies a wide range of public health priorities with specific, measurable objectives.
