Alliance for Immunization in Michigan
Parents want to do everything possible to make sure their children are healthy and protected from preventable diseases. Vaccination is the best way to do that. Vaccines are recommended at certain ages to best protect your child. Some visits may require more vaccines than others. Studies have shown that children can safely receive multiple vaccines at one time.

Newborn Screening
"Newborn Screening is a public health program required by Michigan law to find babies with rare but serious disorders that require early treatment. All babies need to be tested in order to find the small number who look healthy but have a rare medical condition. Babies with these conditions seem healthy at birth but can become very sick in a short time. Each year more than 200 Michigan babies - one in every 500 to 600 births- are found to have a disorder detected by newborn screening." (Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Website)
