Anna Beth Case, MD, Now Offering Vaccines for Children Up to 18

Anna Beth Case, MD, with Hattiesburg Clinic Collins Family Practice Clinic, is now offering childhood vaccines for pediatric patients up to 18 years old, which makes her one of the only pediatricians in the area offering these services. As a pediatrician and internal medicine doctor, she plays a vital role in protecting and promoting health and well-being for patients of all ages.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends all children get routine vaccinations starting at birth and continuing to age 18 to help prevent potentially life-threatening diseases such as measles, mumps, chickenpox and more. When vaccines are available close to home, it becomes significantly easier for parents and guardians to ensure their children receive timely vaccinations. It reduces the time spent traveling to and from health care facilities, which is particularly beneficial for working parents and guardians who might struggle to find time during business hours. Regular visits to a local health care provider for vaccinations can also help build a trusting relationship between the family and the provider. A familiar environment and health care provider can make the experience more comfortable and less intimidating for young children.

With Dr. Case now offering this service, children can get the care they need from a trusted health care physician right in their own community. As a board-certified pediatrician, Case offers integrated care, where vaccination appointments can be combined with routine well-child visits. Same or next-day appointments may be available, which is an added benefit for families.

“As someone who grew up in a rural Mississippi community, I know how difficult it can be to have to travel long distances for pediatric care,” Case said. “When I finished my medical training, I knew I wanted to come back to a rural area and take care of children and their families. Now, families do not have to go far for comprehensive pediatric care that includes well child visits, vaccines and sick visits.”

Case also received accreditation from the Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program. The VFC Program helps children get their recommended vaccinations on schedule by providing free vaccines to children whose parents or guardians may not be able to afford them. For a child to be eligible for the VFC Program, they must be uninsured, underinsured or Medicaid-eligible. Underinsured means that a child has health insurance, but the policy does not cover certain recommended vaccines or has a limit for payment. By participating in the VFC Program, Case is helping to promote health and wellness in children, families and the local community.

Case received her medical degree from the University of Mississippi School of Medicine in Jackson, Miss. She completed her residency in internal medicine and pediatrics at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, and is board certified in internal medicine by the American Board of Internal Medicine and in pediatrics by the American Board of Pediatrics. This dual certification allows her to treat the entire family, from newborns to grandparents.
