Immunizations are not just for children. Recommended immunizations for adults are determined by factors such as age, lifestyle, certain medical conditions, travel locations, and previous immunizations. 

Public Health Immunization Clinics
    Eligibility requirements:

  • Adults and children who do not have health insurance.
  • Adults and children who have health insurance that does not cover vaccinations.
  • Children on Minnesota Medical Assistance (MA), MinnesotaCare, or a Prepaid Medical Assistance Program (PMAP).
  • Children who are American Indian or Alaskan Native.

There is a $20 administration fee for each immunization, but no one who qualifies will be turned away if they are unable to pay the fee. Immunization services given at Public Health should not be substituted for your child's usual well-child visit with his or her physician. All minors younger than age 18 years must be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian.

Keeping Track of Your Shots 
Minnesota Immunization Information Connection (MIIC) uses a confidential, computerized information system, also known as an immunization registry, which contains a complete and accurate record of a person’s immunizations, no matter where they got those shots. Public Health along with clinics, hospitals, schools and day cares participate in this registry.
