Health Services – Vaccines for Children

Making sure that your children get vaccinated is one of the most important things you can do to keep them – and others – healthy!

  • Your children can get their vaccinations from their doctor.
  • Older children can also vaccines from a pharmacist. For a list of pharmacies and other facilities offering vaccines for children, click the Children’s Vaccination List 2023, then Zoom in to read.
  • Please call ahead or make an appointment online to make sure that vaccines are available, that your child is old enough to receive a vaccine at that clinic or pharmacy, and that they take your insurance.
  • Vaccine For Children (VFC) vaccines are offered at NO COST but insurance information will be collected and insurance will be billed for a vaccination administration fee.
