To ensure the health and well-being of our community, the Wayne County Health Department leads the way by providing both Childhood and Adult immunizations to those in need, regardless of ability to pay.

We participate in the Vaccine for Children (VFC) Program and the Adult Program (317) offered through the Indiana State Department of Health for those children and adults who do not have insurance or are currently enrolled in Medicaid.

Immunizations are one of the greatest medical success stories in human history and have saved millions of lives. Prior to immunizations, hundreds of thousands of children were infected and thousands died each year in the United States.

The Wayne County Health Department offers adult and pediatric immunization through appointment. We accept credit cards, check (no out-of-state checks), money orders, cash, and are also able to bill most insurance companies.

To schedule an appointment or for more information, please call (765) 973-9245.

Please bring a current immunization record to the appointment.

If you need a copy of your vaccine record, you will need to obtain a pin number from your healthcare provider or you can call (765-973-9245, option 3).

MyVaxIndiana is a user friendly concept which allows Hoosiers to directly access immunization records from any computer through the use of a personal identification number (PIN). Local health departments and healthcare providers will be the primary access point to obtain PINs. The PINs can be used by individuals to log in to a secure website and check immunization history for themselves and their children as it is recorded in the Indiana Children and Hoosiers Immunization Registry Program (CHIRP). Only registered CHIRP providers will be able to generate PINs.

Frequently Asked Questions about Immunizations

  • Are immunizations safe?

    Immunizations are extremely safe and getting safer and more effective all the time, thanks to medical research and public health officials. Immunizations are given to keep people healthy, and are held to the highest safety standards. This does not mean that vaccines are risk-free. All vaccines may have possible side effects. Most of the side effects are mild, such as redness or soreness around the injection site, or a low-grade fever.

    According to Paul Offit, MD, Director of the Vaccine Educations Center at Children's Hospital in Philadelphia: "...choosing to avoid vaccines is simply a choice to take a different risk. Unvaccinated children are at risk for many diseases including meningitis caused by Hib, bloodstream infections caused by pneumococcus, pneumonia caused by measles, deafness caused by mumps, and liver cancer caused by Hepatitis B virus. When you compare the risk of vaccines and the risk of diseases, vaccines are the safer choice."
