Immunization Services

The Immunization Program provides routine child and adult immunizations.

Childhood Immunizations

Eligible children from birth through 18 years of age can receive federally-funded vaccines through the Vaccines for Children Program (VFC). An administration fee is charged for vaccines but will slide according to income.

Children from birth through 18 years of age who meet at least one of the following criteria are eligible to receive VFC vaccine:
· Insured by TennCare
· Uninsured
· Under-insured

If you have private insurance, private stock vaccine is available. Money is collected at time of visit by cash, check, or credit card.

Adult Immunizations

Federal vaccines are available for uninsured adults age 19-64 for certain recommended vaccines. An administration fee is charged for vaccines but will slide according to income.

Money is collected at time of visit by cash, check, or credit card.
