Disease Prevention & Immuniations

 

Pierce County tracks communicable diseases through an electronic reporting system linking the local, regional and state public health officials with private health care providers, hospitals, and labs. This allows for prompt investigation of possible outbreaks and unusual situation, and to implement control measures to minimize further spread of disease to others.

Immunization is one of the most important public health victories of the 20th century - defeating or sharply reducing diseases such as smallpox, polio, measles, diphtheria, rubella, pertussis, and other diseases. However, many organisms that cause these diseases have not been eliminated, and they could reemerge if immunization levels decrease.

 

 

Communicable Diseases

Pierce County provides a variety of surveillance and investigation of reported or suspected communicable diseases. If you or someone you know has one of the following reportable diseases, please contact your Medical Care Provider or Pierce County Public Health 715-273-6755.

Is a Multi-Jurisdictional Coalition (MJC) for Tobacco Prevention and Control. Pierce County is one of the six participating counties.  The goal of W3TFL is to create a healthier, tobacco-free, culture where people live and work.
