Are you currently expecting? An important component of improving infant mortality is ensuring infants are full-term and providing care and education for premature babies. The resources below can provide you with services, education, and planning tools for your family.
Women, Infant, and Children (WIC)
WIC is a nutrition education program which provides supplemental nutritious foods that promote good health for pregnant women, women who just had a baby, breastfeeding moms, infants and children up to age five.
Summit County Public Health (SCPH) participates in the Vaccine for Children Program (VFC), which enables SCPH to charge only an administration fee of $21 per VFC shot. Children through 18 years of age who are Medicaid-eligible or uninsured/under-insured orAmerican Indian or Alaska Native are eligible to receive VFC. vaccine.
The Summit County Public Health Care Coordination Unit was created to help Summit County residents connect with community services that are available to them and to assist residents through the process of getting the help they need. There is no charge for this service, and it can help individuals and families work their way through the sometimes-confusing steps toward meeting their needs.
