This August, National Immunization Awareness Month raises awareness and encourages everyone to make sure they are current on the necessary vaccinations for potentially harmful diseases.
"HPV vaccination is preventing cancer-causing infections and precancers. Two doses of the HPV vaccine are recommended for all boys and girls at ages 11-12; the vaccine can be given as early as age 9. If you wait until they’re older, they may need three doses instead of two" Source: CDC

Clean Indoor Air Act
The Montana legislature passed the Clean Indoor Air Act (CIAA), one of the most important public health policies in state history, in 2005.
The law requires all enclosed public places and workplaces, including work vehicles, or vehicles that serve as a place of work, and vehicles accessible to the public, such as taxis and buses to be smokefree; and it requires businesses to prominently place smokefree signs on all public entrances. The Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services has adopted these rules.
To submit a complaint of violation of the Clean Indoor Air Act, please follow the link below and complete the online form.
