Vaccines & Immunizations

Who can use this service?

The Public Health Department offers general vaccines, travel shots or shots your child needs for school.

For children, shots are only available for MediCal-eligible or uninsured children.  If you are unsure about whether you qualify, please call (805) 781-5500.  Those with private insurance should see their pediatrician or pharmacist.

What is the process?

Step 1: Determine which vaccinations you need

The Public Health Department offers a range of vaccines. To determine the ones you need, check out the CDC's recommended vaccine schedule.  You can also check out the CDC recommendations for your age group, health status, pregnancy, and foreign travel.

Step 2: Call for an Appointment

Contact our office at (805) 781-5500 to schedule an appointment.  Let them know which vaccines you'll need.

Is there a charge for this service?

You may be eligible for no-cost services with Medi-Cal, CenCal, Medicare, or the Merck Vaccine Patient Assistance Program

Payment is due at time of visit. We accept cash, check, debit/credit cards (except American Express), Medicare, Medi-Cal, and Blue Shield PPO.

Many travel vaccines are not covered by insurance. 

See the fee list below. Please note that the total cost for your visit is the vaccine fee plus the office visit fee, and that some vaccinations require multiple doses. Fees are subject to change as our cost for vaccine can change at any time.
