National Infant Immunization Week: April 22 to April 29, 2024

(4/25/2024) Tompkins County Whole Health is calling attention to the importance of immunizations during this year’s National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW). NIIW runs from April 22–April 29, and serves as an annual reminder that following immunization schedules for children ages 2 years and younger is essential to protect young children from potentially life-threatening, but preventable, diseases.

TCWH Director of Community Health Services, Rachel Buckwalter, RN, BSN, stated, “Infants are particularly vulnerable to infectious diseases. Every dose of every vaccine is important to protect your child and others in the community. Talk to your child’s pediatrician or other healthcare professional to make sure your child is up to date on all the vaccines they need.” Buckwalter added, "The recent increase in measles cases, mostly among unvaccinated young children, illustrates the importance of staying up to date and staying on schedule with the recommended immunizations.”

Tompkins County Whole Health offers immunization clinics every Friday through the New York State funded Vaccines for Children (VFC) program. Additional information about these clinics and eligibility is in the full press release.


Newly Launched Anti-Vaping Campaign Reminds Youth to Keep Your Focus, Not Your Fix

(4/18/2024) Over the past 5 weeks, young people in Tompkins County saw hundreds of posters featuring blurred images of everyday life changed overnight to reveal focused images of youth enjoying sports, reading, classroom activities, friends, and family – activities that can be negatively impacted by vaping and nicotine use. The poster switch-out is part of the “Keep your focus, not your fix” campaign launched earlier this year to discourage vaping and share resources for those looking to quit. The message urges youth to “save their breath” for the activities they enjoy.

Use of e-cigarettes remains prevalent among Tompkins County youth. In fact, nicotine-based vapes are shown to be one of the most used substances among middle and high school students county-wide. E-cigarettes contain nicotine, a highly addictive chemical that is particularly harmful to adolescent brain development.

The anti-vaping campaign was created by Tompkins County Whole Health in partnership with Tobacco Free Zone and the Community Coalition for Healthy Youth with the goal of reducing e-cigarette use among county youth. The concept was inspired by local youth, who offered creative guidance throughout the process.

Whole Health Commissioner Frank Kruppa stated, “As our Tobacco Free Tompkins slogan has long stated, 'We cannot afford another generation of tobacco addiction.' TCWH applauds the efforts of this collaboration between TCWH, Reality Check, and the Coalition for Healthy Youth to implement this awareness campaign, developed by and for local youth.”

Additional information and statements are in the full press release.

TCWH is also announcing a change in our COVID-19 Data Dashboard, to go into effect on Monday, April 22, 2024. Our new presentation will show the trend in positive COVID-19 tests, with data points for 7-day totals of both PCR and Antigen tests.
