Disease Prevention & Immunizations

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.
