It is important that we continue to protect our children with vaccines because outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases can, and do occasionally, occur in this country. Vaccination is one of the best ways parents can protect infants, children and teens from 16 potentially harmful diseases. Vaccine-preventable diseases can be very serious, may require hospitalization, or even be deadly – especially in infants and young children. For pre-teens and teens, vaccination needs vary, but are still important and can protect against life-threatening diseases like meningitis.
Adult immunizations protect adults from diseases and protect the ones they love from being exposed to a disease that may be carried by their parent, grandparent or caregiver.
All immunization clinics are by appointment only and are offered at the Licking County Health Department on Tuesdays: 9:30AM-11:45AM, 1:30PM-3:45PM and 4:30PM-6:45PM and Thursdays: 9:30AM - 11:45 AM, and 1:30PM-3:45PM. Wednesdays we will be at various off-site locations. Medicaid and many private insurance plans are accepted. Children who are not insured or under-insured may qualify for our Vaccines for Children Program (VFC) that provides vaccines at little to no cost. No child will be turned away for the inability to pay. Please call us at (740) 349-6535 to schedule an appointment or learn more about our immunization program.
