National Immunization Awareness Month Logo

Nevada County Public Health is celebrating National Immunization Awareness Month by highlighting the importance of getting all recommended vaccines throughout the life span. With each stage of our lives, vaccines provide protection against many vaccine preventable diseases, from infancy to retirement, including with every pregnancy.

What We Do

Nevada County Public Health offers childhood and adult immunizations, including seasonal flu shots, at our main office in Grass Valley during our regular Immunization Clinic Hours (PDF)​ and during our special vaccine clinics out in the community (see below for more detail).

Vaccines for Children (VFC) Eligibility

The vaccines offered to children are part of the Vaccines for Children (VFC) program.
A child must be 18 years of age or younger and one of the following:  

  • has Medi-Cal or Child Health and Disability Prevention (CHDP) Eligible, OR 
  • has No health insurance, OR
  • is Native American or Alaskan Native
A limited supply of childhood vaccines are available to purchase for children that are not eligible for the VFC program.

Most adult and childhood vaccines are covered by: 
  • Medi-Cal 
  • Nevada County Medi-Cal Managed Care
  • Blue Shield PPO/EPO
  • We also have adult vaccines available for purchase.
    See our Immunization Fee Schedule for costs.

  • 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).

    Travel Vaccines:  We offer Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B vaccinations. For other travel vaccines contact your primary care physician, pharmacy, or travel clinic.
