The vaccines offered to children are part of the Vaccines for Children (VFC) program. A child must be 18 years or younger, who has:
  • No health insurance, OR 
  • is eligible for Medi-Cal, OR 
  • has insurance that does not cover vaccines, OR

A limited supply of childhood vaccines are available to purchase for children that are not eligible for the VFC program.
Most adult vaccines are covered by Medi-Cal, Medi-Cal Managed Care  or Blue Shield PPO/EPO.  We also have adult vaccines available for purchase.

Questions About Vaccines & Immunizations


The laws in California recently changed for school-age kids and vaccines. For more information about SB277 and the current immunization laws, check out Shots for School.

If you are a parent with questions about immunizations for your child, we encourage you to read this Vaccine Safety Handout (PDF).
