Organizers say please do not come to this clinic if you or a family member is sick.

What to Bring:
● Child’s vaccination records
● Insurance card*
● A completed vaccine consent form (one per child)
● A completed COVID-19 consent form (if applicable) All of the forms can be found on the health dept. website.

*Children with no insurance, or whose insurance does not cover vaccines, qualify for coverage under the Vaccines for Children Program. Please note: we will charge an administration fee of $21 per shot. There is a sliding fee scale that could reduce charges. There is no charge at this time for the COVID-19 vaccine. Staying up to date on all recommended childhood immunizations is a vital part of a child’s overall wellness, growth, and development. The COVID-19 vaccine is one important part of keeping children healthy. We encourage all eligible children 12 and older to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Please continue to follow critical public health guidance such as wearing a mask while in indoor public places regardless of your vaccination status, maintain social distance, wash your hands, and stay home when sick.
