Why are vaccines important?

Many diseases that used to be common in this country and around the world, can now be prevented by vaccination including:

  • Polio
  • Measles
  • Diphtheria
  • Pertussis (whooping cough)
  • Rubella (German measles)
  • Mumps
  • Tetanus
  • Rotavirus
  • Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib)

Thanks to a vaccine, one of the most terrible diseases in history – smallpox – no longer exists outside the laboratory.

Over the years vaccines have prevented countless cases of disease and saved millions of lives.

 

Vaccines for Children

Vaccine schedules are based on nationally recommended standards.

Costs for immunizations are based on costs of the vaccines and/or an administrative cost. Most insurances including the Oregon Health Plan (OHP) are accepted.  Please check with your insurance company before making any appointments.  However, no child will be denied vaccines due to inability to pay.

The Vaccines for Children Program helps provide vaccines to children whose parents or guardians may not be able to afford them. This helps to ensure that all children have a better chance of getting their recommended vaccinations on schedule.

Parents, if you cannot pay the administration fee of $21.96 per vaccine, this fee may be waived. Please tell us if this fee is unaffordable for you.

 

Back-to-School

Shots are required by law for children in attendance at public and private schools, preschools, childcare facilities, and Head Start programs in Oregon. Nearly every place that provides care for a child outside the home requires shots or a medical or non-medical exemption to stay enrolled.

2016-2017 School Year Immunization Schedule

Oregon school law requires that children who attend public and private schools, pre-schools, childcare facilities and Head Start programs in Oregon be vaccinated. Nearly every place that provides care for a child outside the home requires shots or a religious or medical exemption to stay enrolled.

Appointments are necessary, unless a drop-in clinic has been scheduled.
