Immunizations at the Health Center

WINTER 2022-2023: To serve our patients in the best way possible, if you have a scheduled appointment with our immunizations clinic and are sick or have symptoms of COVID, common cold, RSV, or the flu, please do not come into the clinic. Instead, please call to see what appointment options will meet your needs.

What to Bring to Your Appointment

There are some requirements for certain age groups when coming in to receive vaccine(s):
  • 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 (must be 18+) to bring the child to the clinic. You must bring one for each child you are sending in for immunizations. Also bring a completed screening question form.
    • Download the Authorization for Consent to Immunize form to fill out, sign, and send with child(ren) to be immunized.
    • Or you can write your own letter of permission (this is treated as a one time permission), but it must include the date and:
      • A phone number where parent/legal guardian can be reached
      • Child's name who will be receiving the immunization(s)
      • Name of the person accompanying the child
      • Parent/legal guardian's name - Please print and sign your name
      • Reason why you are sending the child in - for example: "I give consent for my child to receive any and all recommended immunizations"
