Diseases Pose a Constant Threat
Through vaccinations, health care professionals have reduced, and in some cases eliminated, the threat from many diseases that killed or severely disabled people generations ago.
However, even if just a few cases of these diseases exist worldwide, we need regular vaccinations to continue receiving the protection they provide and keep them from widespread recurrence. To preserve our safety now and in the future, it’s important to be fully immunized and to keep your shot record up to date.
Patients interested in utilizing the services of the St. Charles County Division of Health Services must schedule an appointment prior to their visit. To schedule a convenient time please call 636-949-1857 for the Immunization Clinic.
Preparing for Your Appointment
All patients 18 and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Please bring a current immunization record to the visit.
Vaccines received from the state are available to anyone who meets the eligibility guidelines for a particular vaccine. In addition, the Children's Immunization Program (CHIP) offers near-cost immunizations to those ineligible for the Vaccines For Children program.
Immunizations for Children
Our Immunization Clinic offers all childhood vaccines required by the state of Missouri. These vaccines are provided by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services and are purchased in part with federal funds through the Vaccines for Children (VFC) program.
Adult Immunization Program
The vaccinations you receive in your childhood often fade over time, and many others require routine boosters to maintain their safeguards. To continue the protection for St. Charles County’s adult population, our department offers certain vaccines to residents ages 18 and older through the Adult Immunization Program (AIP).
There is a nominal fee for these vaccines (which may be covered by your insurance provider). Call 636-949-1857 for more information. Watch a CDC video about adult vaccinations to learn more about the importance of vaccines.
