Immunizations

While several vaccine-preventable diseases are at or near record lows, we must continue to vaccinate ourselves and our children for protection against the many harmful health effects these diseases present. Research continues daily to ensure vaccine safety.

The SCDPH offers several immunization clinics throughout Saginaw County. Registered nurses provide TB testing and immunization services required for childcare, school, and college entry, as well as adult needs. Protection is provided against:

Diphtheria

Tetanus

Pertussis

Polio

Measles

Mumps

Rubella

Haemophilus Influenza
Type b (Hib)

Hepatitis A & B

Meningitis

Pneumococcal disease

Varicella (chicken pox)

Human Papillomavirus

Seasonal Influenza

Rotavirus

Zoster (shingles)

 

Currently, we can bill HealthPlus, Blue Care Network, Medicaid, Priority Health, and some Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan insurance plans for the cost of covered vaccines. You must present a picture ID and your insurance card at the time of service.

  • Children younger than 19 years of age who have no insurance coverage or limited insurance coverage (that which does not cover shots) may qualify to receive vaccines for $20.00 per injection.
     
  • Adults 19 years and older who have no insurance coverage or limited insurance coverage (that which does not cover shots) may qualify to receive limited vaccines for $20.00 per injection.

All others need to return to their primary care physician or pay for the service based on the current SCDPH immunization fee schedule.

Children younger than 19 years of age are eligible to receive Vaccines for Children (VFC) if they meet one of the following federal requirements: 

  • Be enrolled in Medicaid at the time of the visit
  • Have no insurance coverage for ANY portion of the vaccine
  • Be an Alaskan Native or an American Indian

An immunization record is provided at the time of service. Replacement records will be provided for $1.00 per copy.

All fees are payable by cash or check only.
