Public Health provides services for children and adults with immunization or vaccination needs that are not covered by insurance or MA. We also can provide education on vaccine safety, including information on recommended vaccines for travel out of the country and direct you to clinics that offer those vaccines. Everybody wants to make the right choices and do what is best for their children. As a community, there is also a need to protect the public’s health. Immunizations prevent the spread of communicable diseases among children and adults. Without immunizations, you or your child are at greater risk of catching one of the vaccine preventable diseases. These vaccines are supplied by the Minnesota Department of Health and are the same as those your doctor gives.
