We Vaccinate All Ages!

We carry Vaccines for Children (VFC), vaccines for the uninsured and underinsured, vaccines for purchase and we accept most major insurances. Please note that VFC does have an administration fee of $21 for non Medicaid clients.

Through the 317 publicly funded program, we can vaccinate adults who meet the following criteria with free vaccine (not all vaccines available) and a minimal administration fee of $21:
  • Uninsured
  • Underinsured - insurance that does not pay for immunizations (all or some) or has a fixed dollar limit or cap for immunization coverage (does not include those with high or unmet deductibles)
We accept Medicaid for adults as well as children. We also accept Medicare B for seasonal flu and pneumonia vaccines (no fees applied) and Medicare D for Tdap and Zostavax (client only pays the deductible).

Please view the current list of insurance plans we accept. If you do not find your insurance plan on the list or have have questions about your plan's coverage, please call your insurance company. The company's phone number should be on the back of your insurance card.

  • An up-to-date immunization record must accompany all children 18 years of age and younger to receive any immunizations! If the child does not have an up-to-date immunization record, they may be refused services.
  • Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian (Legal guardians must bring proof of guardianship).
  • If a child's parent or legal guardian is unable to accompany the child to the clinic for immunizations, they can give written permission to another adult to bring the child to the clinic. Download form to fill out, sign, and send with child(ren) to be immunized. You must fill out one for each child you are sending in for immunizations, or you can write your own letter of permission (this is treated as a one time permission), but it must include the date and:
