Immunizations

There are a number of illnesses that can be prevented by vaccinations. Immunizations have reduced the incidence of diseases like measles and whooping cough (pertussis) and eliminated smallpox as a threat. Immunizations are still critical for protecting the health of children and adults. Learn more about immunizations at www.cdc.gov.

Children's Immunizations

The Vaccines For Children Program provides free vaccine for routine children's immunizations. VFC covers children that have Medicaid or are uninsured. Beginning on October 1, 2012, GCHD can no longer use State-purchased vaccine to immunize children with health insurance. Click here to learn more about this policy change.


We can now bill Blue Cross, UnitedHealthcare, Aetna, Cigna, TriCare and most other insurance providers for children's immunizations.
