Immunizations

Immunizations are available for children and adults who are uninsured, on Medical Assistance, or for those who do not have vaccine coverage through their private insurance. These vaccinations are available through the Minnesota Department of Health Vaccines for Children Program and the Minnesota Department of Health Adult Uninsured and Underinsured Vaccine Program. A donation of $21 is requested for each immunization given, but no one is refused immunizations due to inability to pay.

New childhood immunization requirements begin September 1, 2014 in Minnesota:
  • These changes to the immunization requirements will help protect children and communities from a number of serious diseases.
