Welcome! The JoCo Child Blog

Welcome to our new JoCo Child website and blog! If you’ve been here before and you are wondering what’s new, here are a few quick items.


  • Updated and added new vaccine pages
  • Added a blog (obviously) with current news, recommended reading and more
  • Created a Facebook page – join the community!

Our goal and commitment at JoCo Child is still the same: to provide accurate and relevant information about numerous vaccines to parents, grandparents, students and even healthcare workers looking for vaccine resources, all living in and around Josephine County.

This website isn’t just for those considering vaccinating; it’s also for those parents who have vaccinated their children and may still have questions or are seeking re-assurance that they made the right choice. We recommend starting with our Vaccine Info page, or our Frequently Asked Parent Questions page.

Are you a parent trying to help another parent make this decision? Explaining the value and science behind vaccines is tough — we understand. And we hope to help with the resources we’ve included here.

Or maybe you are doing a project on vaccines for a class. We’ve provided lots of local statistics on multiple vaccines and the diseases they prevent, making this website a resource for you as well.

What Will Our JoCo Child Blog Have?

There is no shortage of blogs in this world so you might be asking yourself, why read another?

The JoCo Child blog will serve as a place to promote other immunization partners, suggest reading materials, address current issues around vaccines and sometimes just have fun by highlighting some of the joys and quirky bits of living in Josephine County, OR. We aim to serve as a hub for education, answers to frequent vaccination questions, local stories and much more.

Enjoy browsing around, and thanks for being here!
