    Vaccine Fees

    Pediatric Vaccines:
    The administration charge for all pediatric vaccines will now be increased to $16.00 per dose. There is no co-pay for Medicaid recipients. We will not deny pediatric vaccines even if the responsible party cannot pay for them..

    Adult Vaccines:
    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 the vaccines listed below. The fees for these vaccines have decreased. Adults are expected to pay at the point of service unless the requested vaccines are covered by Medicare Part B or Medicaid.
