CHILDREN IMMUNIZATIONS

IMMUNIZATIONS ARE DONE BY APPOINTMENT ONLY!

Ste. Genevieve Health Department offers all recommended vaccines for children from birth up to their 19th birthday. We participate in the VFC (Vaccines For Children) program through the state to vaccinate children who qualify at no cost.

How children qualify for the VFC program:

  • Are Medicaid-eligible
  • Do not have health insurance
  • Are an American Indian or Alaskan Native
  • Are underinsured (private insurance that does not cover vaccines)

If the child has private insurance, we are able to bill most insurance companies for these immunizations. For questions on immunizations or to make an appointment please call (573)883-7411.
