Immunizations

Adult and childhood immunizations are offered for a nominal fee. The patient must pay for vaccines not supplied by the State, but there are no income restrictions. A parent or guardian must accompany anyone under 18 years of age. Costs of vaccines will vary due to price changes from the manufacturers.

Travel immunizations are available for persons planning on leaving the country. Travelers should see a health-care provider at least 4–6 weeks before the trip to allow time for vaccines to take effect and to start taking medicine, if indicated. Pre-exposure rabies vaccine may also be obtained for travelers who plan to spend a lot of time outdoors.

For more information, or to make an appointment, call 217-535-3102.
