New South Carolina State Government Documents for June 2015

HIB Vaccine handout

The South Carolina Digital State Documents Depository provides access to publications produced by state agencies and state-supported academic institutions. These publications provide citizens with crucial information about state government, including statistics, annual accountability reports, and data on a wide variety of topics related to the state. The new June South Carolina State Documents June publication provides a description, author, and link to the full-text for each new agency document published in June.

This month, we have many new publications about public health and the environment from the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control.  There are several handouts about common vaccines, including the Rotavirus vaccine, Hib Vaccine, HPV vaccine, and the Pneumococcal Polysaccharide vaccine.  Each handout provides information about why you should get vaccinated, what the vaccine treats, what dosing is recommended, who should not get the vaccine, risks of a reaction, what to do in case of a serious reaction, information about the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, and how you can learn more.
