Immunizations for Children

To help Tulare County parents make sure their children get all the immunizations (shots) they need, at the right ages, the Immunization Program helps provide vaccines to children whose parents or guardians may not be able to afford them. This helps ensure that all children have a better chance of getting their recommended vaccinations on schedule. These vaccines protect babies, young children, and adolescents from vaccine-preventable diseases.

Shots are available for those who have no health insurance, have Medi-Cal, or whose insurance does not cover immunizations. Please call for information about these low-cost immunizations.

To contact us, or for a list of clinic dates and locations, see the Contact and Locations tab.

Immunizations for Adults

We provide vaccinations to individuals who are traveling abroad or have school, work, or immigration requirements.

See the "Contact and Location" and "Resources" tabs for more information.
