VACCINES FOR CHILDREN (VFC) PROGRAM

The Marquette County Health Department participates in the Federal "Vaccines for Children" (VFC) program that provides vaccines to children who have Medicaid, no insurance, no insurance coverage for vaccines, or are native Alaskan or Native American Indian.  You could also qualify if you have met your wellness cap for the year and you have no further immunization coverage.  Please call you insurance provider to find out if you have any immunization coverage. 

For those who qualify for the Vaccine for Children Program, there is a $10.00 administration fee.

Vaccines are also available for those who have private insurance. We bill most major insurances. If insurance does not cover vaccines, children may be eligible for VFC vaccine listed above. Uninsured/underinsured adults may be eligible for low cost vaccines listed below. Please phone to inquire about eligibility.
