Other Child Health Services


Childhood immunizations are administered to children age birth through 18 years of age. All vaccines required for school are offered free of charge to all children through the Vaccines for Children program. Please call our clinic to schedule an appointment. A parent or legal guardian must accompany a child during their visit. Please bring your child's immunization record with you so we can review and update.

Infants, school age children and teens need vaccines to protect them. Let's work together to immunize our children for a healthier future. Additional vaccines are available, based on your child’s age/need. For more information please call our clinic.
