Childhood Immunizations

Appointments for childhood immunizations can be made at (765) 472-3901 x1216.

Childhood Immunization Schedule

Currently, we are only able to immunize children following VFC guidelines:

Children under 19 years of age are eligible to receive vaccines through the VFC program if they meet one of the following criteria:

  • Eligible for Medicaid
  • Uninsured
  • Under insured
  • American Indian or Alaskan Native

Under insured means the child has health insurance, but the insurance either doesn’t cover the recommended vaccine(s) or only covers a fixed dollar amount for vaccines. A child becomes eligible once the fixed dollar amount is reached.

Children whose health insurance covers the cost of vaccinations are not eligible for VFC vaccines, even when a claim for the cost of the vaccine and its administration would be denied for payment by the insurance carrier because the plan's deductible has not been met.
