Pre to 3
7 out of every 1,000 infants don’t make it to their first birthday in southwestern Indiana. Collectively, Indiana has the worst infant mortality rate in the Midwest. It’s time for that to change.
The Pre To 3 program has been launched in our community to reduce risks associated with infant mortality by providing long-term, consistent, hands-on support for expecting mothers, infants, and families.

Why immunize our children? Sometimes we are confused by the messages in the media. First we are assured that, thanks to vaccines, some diseases are almost gone from the U.S. But we are also warned to immunize our children, ourselves as adults, and the elderly.
Unless we can eliminate the disease, it is important to keep immunizing. Even if there are only a few cases of disease today, if we take away the protection given by vaccination, more and more people will become infected and will spread disease to others. Soon we will undo the progress we have made over the years.
