Immunizations And Health Screenings Through Richland Public Health

27 Jan , 2018  

Throughout the year, Richland Public Health offers health screenings throughout Richland County for child and adult vaccinations (Neighborhood Immunization Clinics) and regular health checkups for the entire family (Community Health Screenings). Below are quick links to the information on these screenings where you can get downloadable PDFs with dates, locations, and times.

2018 Neighborhood Immunizations

Infants, children and adults can get the shots they need at our Neighborhood Immunization Clinics staffed by public health nurses from Richland Public Health. Children must be accompanied by an adult/guardian and need an up-to-date shot record and insurance card at time of service. Medicaid and Medicaid Managed Care, Anthem and Medical Mutual cards are accepted. No child is denied vaccines due to inability to pay (donations are accepted). Cost of most children’s vaccines is $28 and then $15 for each additional dose. Pricing for adult vaccine varies.

For questions, please call the Richland Public Health Clinic at 419-774-4700.
