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.

Sexually Transmitted Infections Testing and Treatment

If you are sexually active with multiple partners and have high risk sex activity by not using condoms please make an appointment to have testing performed by your local primary care provider.

If you do not have a local primary care provider you may call the Federally Qualified Health Center to make an appointment 541-265-4947.

The Public Health clinic has free condoms available at 36 SW Nye street Newport, OR 97365.
