Cost of immunizations varies depending on the vaccine given and on insurance status.


 Notice: vaccines for uninsured

As of October 1, 2012 the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) implemented changes to the funding of childhood vaccines. As a result of this change, Garfield County Public Health can no longer use federally funded vaccine on fully-insured children. The CDC defines fully-insured as "anyone with insurance that covers the cost of vaccine, even if the insurance includes a high deductible or co-pay".

Federally funded vaccines play a crucial role in assuring national immunization coverage and prevention of disease. With the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, it is anticipated that more individuals will have private insurance that will include routine vaccines. Therefore, federally funded vaccines are to be available for those with the least ability to pay and who have no insurance coverage.

If you have private insurance, you are encouraged to call your insurance company to determine what coverage you have regarding routine vaccinations. Garfield County Public Health is "in-network" with several larger insurance carriers.
