Immunizations

MCPHD offers a full range of pediatric and adult vaccinations. We do not provide travel vaccines (yellow fever, typhoid, malaria prevention), rabies vaccination, or immune globulin. Macoupin County Public Health Department participates in the Vaccine for Children program. For more information about the Vaccine for Children program, visit the CDC web page at http://www.cdc.gov/features/vfcprogram/. MCPHD will bill Medicaid for immunizations and will bill Medicare for influenza and pneumonia vaccinations. Individuals not covered by Medicaid and not eligible to receive Vaccine for Children vaccine will be charged a fee for vaccination. The fee is based on the cost of the vaccine plus a $10.00 administration fee. Click here to view the fee schedule.

Arrangements may be made for another adult to bring your children. Specific forms must be completed by the parent. Please complete these forms for children below the age of 18 before coming to the clinic. Adults ages 18+ need to complete these forms before coming to the vaccination clinic.
