Why should your child be fully immunized?

Before vaccines became widely available, diseases like measles, mumps, and whooping cough were common in childhood, and thousands died or were left blind, deaf or brain-damaged by them. Today vaccines have totally or nearly eradicated several diseases such as smallpox, polio, diphtheria, and hib infections, according to the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Despite available vaccines, many diseases still persist putting unvaccinated babies and toddlers at risk. The CDC reported in the 2011 MMWR Weekly that 72% of the Indiana population ages 19-35 months have completed their childhood series of immunizations. That's GREAT progress, however, this means 28% of our young ones are still left vulnerable.

Kosciusko County Health Department

Offers immunizations to VFC-eligible Indiana residents. VFC (Vaccines For Children) is a federally funded program that provides recommended childhood vaccines for those age 18 or under, who have traditional or CHIP Medicaid and are uninsured.

There is a $15 fee per shot for those who have no insurance or insurance does not cover vaccines. Cash, checks and Credit/Debit Cards are accepted; Medicaid and insurances will be billed. No one will be turned away for inability to pay.

**The Immunization clinic can now accept some forms of insurance, please call your insurance prior to arrival to see if vaccines are covered**
