Bureau of Maternal and Child Health

Natalie Bullock - Bureau Chief

The COVID-19 vaccine is the best way to keep our children safe. CDC recommends COVID-19 vaccines for everyone six months and older.  Parents or caregivers can find available vaccines at Vaccines.gov or by contacting their healthcare provider or local pharmacy.

The primary focus of the Bureau of Maternal and Child Health is to reduce maternal and infant morbidity and mortality rates through coordination with community-based programs such as Local Health Departments, Federally Qualified Health Centers, and Community Based Organizations. The programs provide a variety of prenatal and pediatric health education and counseling, developmental screening, and referrals to medical and community services as needed for pregnant individuals, infants and children with special medical, environmental or social needs. The primary goals of these programs are to:

  • Promote health through increased access to high quality medical care and prevention services
  • Provide education and information to assist clients to achieve maximum self-sufficiency; link to services based on clients' needs through integration with other programs; and
  • Strengthen communities by coordination and linkage of community and state resources to provide the clients with the best possible care offered.
