  Madison County, Iowa - Public Health - Immunizations

Madison County Public Health works with the Iowa Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to provide vaccines for preventable disease. The goal of the Immunization Program is to reduce and ultimately eliminate the incidence of vaccine preventable diseases by working in conjunction with public and private health care providers throughout the state. Immunization services include vaccinations for infants through adults, including the required school immunizations, flu clinics, and senior immunizations.

Payment for immunization services include private pay, insurance billing (call for provider participation), and the Vaccines For Children (VFC) state grant. The VFC grant provides vaccines for children 0-18 years at no cost if they meet any of the following:

• Enrolled in Medicaid
• Do not have health insurance
• Are uninsured
• Are underinsured (have health insurance, but does not cover the cost of vaccines)
• Are American Indian or Alaskan Native

Appointments can be made by calling the office at 515-462-9051, walk-ins are also welcome.
