About Our Child Immunization Clinic
The Union County Health Department is committed to providing immunization services to all children birth through 18 years of age. Our childhood immunization clinic is by appointment only. Children 11 years and older can also be immunized during our Adult Clinic by appointment on Mondays and Tuesdays from 8 - 9 am and 3 - 4 pm and Thursdays and Fridays from 8 - 9 am.
To make an appointment, please call 937-642-2053. We will need your child's shot record to be able to provide vaccinations.
Shots Available at Child Immunization Clinic
DTaP (Diptheria, Tetanus, Pertussis)
Hep B (Hepatitis B)
Hep A (Hepatitis A)
HIB (Haemophilus Influenza)
HPV (Human Papillomavirus)
MMR (Measle, Mumps, and Rubella)
We offer combination vaccines to reduce the number of shots your child needs.
Cost for Immunizations
Cost for child immunizations varies depending on vaccine needed, the child's insurance status, and the family's financial situation. We do offer vaccines through the "Vaccines for Children" (VFC) program. The VFC program allows us to provide required vaccines for free or at reduced cost for children who are uninsured, under-insured or covered by any medicaid insurance. We accept most private insurance plans. A sliding fee scale is available to those without insurance and no child is turned away for inability to pay for vaccinations.

Back to School Immunizations
Is your child getting ready to enter school? Please check with the school that they will be attending for a list of required immunizations for school. Recommendations and requirements for school- age immunizations have been updated. Children entering kindergarten are required to have 2 varicella immunizations. Children entering seventh grade are required to have a meningitis vaccine and TDAP booster. Teens entering twelfth grade are now required to have a meningitis vaccine. If your child does not have the required immunizations, by state law, they may be excluded from school until they receive them. Please click here for more information on updates to Ohio school vaccination requirements.
Recommended child and teen immunizations are available year round. However, the Union County Health Department does offer several Back to School Shot clinics each fall to accommodate for demand. Please call for an appointment in late July or early August. Please be advised that the clinics in the last few weeks of August tend to be the busiest, so get your child up to date on their immunizations as early as possible! Not sure what they need? Contact your local school district or speak to the Immunization Nurse at the Union County Health Department by calling 937-642-2053.
