A $3.00 donation per child is requested for all childhood vaccines. (No one is ever turned away for inability to donate.)

All recommended childhood vaccines are offered at our monthly childhood immunization clinics. An up-to-date shot record is required in order to administer immunizations to anyone. Vaccines are offered to ages 1 month thru 18 years at these clinics. All children under 18 years of age are required to have parent/guardian present.

We do not give vaccines to anyone 19 years or older at our childhood immunization clinics. If you have a high school student that is 19 or older, please contact us to inquire about vaccines that are needed, costs, availability, and appointment scheduling.


Additional Information

Per Federal Guidelines, we cannot provide vaccines to any child who has private insurance that pays for vaccines. If your insurance pays for vaccines, we encourage you to contact your child's physician for the needed vaccines.

We request payment with cash only.
