Immunizations: 

Marquette County Health Department Clinic Services offers a variety of immunizations to children, teens and adults. The goal of the immunization program is to reduce the incidence of vaccine-preventable disease. All are welcome to receive immunizations at the Health Department.

What vaccines are offered?
The immunization program offers all routinely recommended childhood and adult vaccines.  Check out the Center for Disease Control Immunization schedules here: 

 Childhood Immunization Schedules (0-18 years) and Adult Immunization Schedule (19 years and older)

How do  I schedule an appointment?
Clinic hours are routinely held 2 days each week on Tuesday and Friday between 8:30-5.  Appointments can be scheduled by phoning 906-475-7844.  Same day appointments are often available. If alternate days are needed, they may be accomodated as staffing allows. Please bring any previous immunization records to your appointment. Off site immunization clinics may be arranged for larger groups in need of immunizations.
Immunization appointments can be coordinated with other visits to the Health Department such as WIC or Family Planning appointments. 
 
What are the fees for vaccines?
Vaccination does not have to be expensive and MCHD provides vaccines at low cost to both children and adults. 

Children 0-18 years of age:  
The  Vaccines for Children (VFC) program provides vaccines to children who are uninsured, underinsured (insurance doesn't cover vaccines, Medicaid-eligible, and Native American and Alaskan Native children. There is a small administration fee for these vaccines. 
MCHD bills all major insurance plans. There is no co-pay for immunization visits. 
No child will be turned away due to inability to pay.

Adults age 19 and older:
MCHD participates in the Michigan Adult Vaccine Program (MI-AVP) which provides some vaccines to adults at low cost. Please call to check vaccines that are offered through this state program. There is a small administration fee for these vaccines.
MCHD bills all major insurance plans and many insurance plans fully cover the cost of vaccines. We ask that you verify your  coverage with your individual carrier.
