Child Immunizations are one of history’s most successful public health tools for preventing serious disease and death. The medical clinic offers all childhood immunizations, or “shots” as they are sometimes called, for children, birth through age 18.
If you have insurance, your insurance will be billed for your immunizations. Those visiting the medical clinic for immunizations are asked to bring their insurance card to each appointment.
Due to changes at the federal and state levels for purchasing and reimbursement of vaccine, the health department medical clinic is now required to bill insurance companies for all adult and childhood immunizations. However, no child, under the age of 18 years, will be denied an immunization due to inability to pay. Medicaid is still be accepted.
We accept cash, checks, money orders, debit or credit cards for payment.
Make checks and money orders payable to the Knox Public Health.
Bring your child’s immunization record. If your child has received shots at Knox Public Health, we can access your child’s records from our database. If your child needs a copy of his or her immunization record in the future, i.e., when going to college, applying for a job or travel purposes, call 740-399-8009 to request a copy.
