This program provides immunizations to adults and children in Lake County throughout the year.
At the family immunization clinics, children can be immunized with all recommended and required routine immunizations. The charge for children who are VFC eligible is $16 per dose, but the fee may be waived if the family is unable to pay for the vaccination. The fee for non-VFC-eliglble children is also $16 per dose, but payment is expected at the time of service. The fee is scheduled to go up to $23 on December 1, 2015. See below for VFC eligibility guidelines.

Immunizations cost $16.00 per shot, but no child is turned away due to a lack of ability to pay. There is no co-pay for Medicaid recipients.
We no longer carry most vaccines for adults. These can be obtained at your private provider’s office or at most pharmacies. However, we do continue to carry influenza, Pneumonia, and Tdap vaccines. Immunizations are also provided to adults during our family clinics.
