Immunizations for Children

Vaccines are given based on guidelines from the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The Vaccines For Children (VFC) program is a federally funded program that provides vaccines to children who might not otherwise be vaccinated because of inability to pay.
