[ARCHIVED] Screening and Vaccination to Support Migrant Family Access to Public Health Care


The Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) is dedicated to vaccinating and screening migrant families, particularly children, to ensure their health and well-being. They aim to address potential immunization gaps, notably focusing on polio, in newly arrived children. DPH has partnered with local organizations to create vaccination profiles, perform tuberculosis and lead exposure testing, and administer vaccinations. These efforts align with the federal McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act.
