Immunization is the single most important and effective way to prevent and control the spread of vaccine preventable diseases. In coordination with local partners, Clark County Public Health is working to help increase immunization rates across the lifespan in order to help keep our communities safe and healthy.
For parents, the decision to immunize your child is an important one. Protect you and your family by keeping your immunizations up-to-date.
While Clark County Public Health no longer offers immunizations directly, we are happy to assist with connecting you with the services available in our area.
Where can I get immunized?
To get immunized, please contact your health care provider or one of the following:
- Children and adults
- SeaMar (360) 852-9070
Many Clark County pharmacies offer travel immunizations including Yellow Fever. Call your local pharmacy or visit CDC for a list of Yellow Fever Vaccination Clinics by county in Washington state for more information.
What vaccines do you or your child need?
The CDC immunization schedules break down the recommended vaccines by the age or age range when each vaccine or series of shots is recommended. This schedule will help you and your provider know what shots are due when for infants and children, pre-teens and teens, and even adults.
School and Child Care Immunization Exemptions
Washington state law now requires a licensed health care provider to sign a Certificate of Exemption for a parent or guardian wishing to exempt their child from school and child care immunization requirements. The provider’s signature verifies that the provider gave the parent or guardian information about the benefits and risks of immunization. A parent or guardian can also turn in a signed letter from a health care provider stating the same information. For more information visit Washington State DOH - Immunization.
For Public Health and Healthcare Providers
Vaccines for Children Program
The Vaccines For Children (VFC) program is a federally funded program that provides vaccines at no cost to children who might not otherwise be vaccinated because of inability to pay. CDC buys vaccines at a discount and distributes them to grantees, such as; state health departments and certain local and territorial public health agencies, which in turn distribute them at no charge to those private physicians' offices and public health clinics registered as VFC providers.
