Immunization is one of the most effective means available for protecting the health of your child and the health of our community. The Clackamas County Public Health Division encourages parents to:
- Keep an updated record of your child’s immunizations.
- Remember to update your child’s school or child care facility anytime your child receives a new shot.
- Keep your child current on their immunizations. Kids need 80% of their shots by the age of 2.
Clackamas County Public Health Division's Immunization Program will be at the following upcoming events to provide childhood immunizations and flu shots to uninsured adults:
No Upcoming Events
Clackamas Public Health Divison works with Clackamas Health Centers to provide immunizations for people in need. Clackamas Health Centers offer immunizations at a low cost and have discount opportunities based on household income. Nobody will be denied service based on the inability to pay.
Staff will make a plan for your child's immunization needs and make sure you receive reminders when your child is due for another immunization. If your child misses an appointment or is behind on their immunizations it is not necessary to start over. Your medical provider will continue the shots from where they left off.
Immunizations are available for children and adults by appointment at the Beavercreek Clinic and at the Sunnyside Health and Wellness Center.
For more information or to schedule an appointment call (503) 655-8471.
