VACCINES FOR CHILDREN (VFC) PROGRAM
The Marquette County Health Department participates in the Federal "Vaccines for Children" (VFC) program that provides vaccines to children who have Medicaid, no insurance, no insurance coverage for vaccines, or are native Alaskan or Native American Indian. You could also qualify if you have met your wellness cap for the year and you have no further immunization coverage. Please call you insurance provider to find out if you have any immunization coverage.
For those who qualify for the Vaccine for Children Program, there is a $10.00 administration fee.
PRIVATE INSURANCE BILLING FOR VACCINES
We have a private supply of vaccines available for those who have private insurance that we bill. Check with your insurance company to see if vaccines are covered. If we cannot bill your insurance you will need to pay market price for the private vaccine. Prices for these vaccines vary.
VACCINES FOR ADULTS
Helping Adults pay for Vaccines
Adult vaccines may also be available at a low cost to eligible individuals: Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, HPV, MMR, Tdap, Pneumonia and flu vaccines. Call our clinic to see if you are elegible for a program to receive your vaccine at a low cost.
