Immunizations are given at the Health Center on Wednesdays from 8 am to 3:30 pm and other days by appointment. All required childhood immunizations are provided at the health center for children with Medicaid, an accepted private insurance plan, or who would like to pay out of pocket.
Several adult immunizations are available including vaccinations that help prevent against tetanus, pertussis, shingles, and pneumonia. The Health Center is able to bill most Medicare plans and insurances, or individuals can pay out of pocket.
Flu vaccination is administered during flu season. The health center accepts Medicaid, Medicare, private insurance, and out of pocket payment for flu vaccination.
Are you and your children up-to-date on your immunizations? Look at the CDC's Immunization schedule to make sure you have all the vaccines you need, or contact the Health Center if you have any questions.
