SCHD participates in the Vaccines for Children Program (VFC) which provides vaccines for free or at a low cost.  These children must be 18 years and younger and meet one of the following criteria: 

·        be enrolled in Medicaid

·        have medical insurance that does not cover any portion of their immunizations

·        have no medical insurance

·        be an American Indian or Alaskan native

·        have medical insurance but have exceeded the annual cap for preventive care

 

If a parent is not accompanying the child to the immunization appointment, please call in advance to receive consent forms or consent forms may be accessed at the following link:
