We love kids. Helping them stay healthy is what Harris Health System's TroubleShooters Immunization Program is all about. The program is an effort to increase the percentage of children who are fully immunized in Harris County by providing immunizations in non-traditional settings (for example, daycare centers, Medicaid offices, pre-schools, public events, etc.).
TroubleShooters helps reduce the potential of childhood disease outbreaks like measles, educates parents about the importance of sibling immunization, and reduces potential inpatient costs for sick children. Children's shot records are reviewed and parental consent is obtained prior to immunizations. Harris Health nurses follow-up, as needed, with additional immunizations. Children who are identified with a health problem are referred to one of our community health centers for a physician visit.

TroubleShooters site visits are available upon request to provide immunization services at schools (public/private), churches, stores, health fairs, daycare centers, low-income housing or apartment complexes, or any other special community site or event.
