Saint Charles County, Missouri – The state of Missouri requires students to be up-to-date on specific immunizations before attending school. To help parents and students meet these requirements and to minimize the spread of vaccine-preventable diseases, the St. Charles County Department of Public Health’s Immunization Clinic provides these required vaccinations.
Located at 1650 Boones Lick Road in St. Charles, the Immunization Clinic offers vaccinations through conveniently scheduled appointments or walk-in hours. Appointments may be scheduled from 8:30 to 11 a.m. and 1:30 to 4 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays by calling 636-949-1857. Along with these scheduled appointments, walk-in clients are welcome from 8:30 to 11 a.m. and 1:30 to 4 p.m. on Tuesdays. Additionally, the clinic will provide back-to-school vaccinations at walk-in only clinics on:
- Thursday, July 26 (8:30 to 11 a.m. and 1:30 to 4 p.m.)
- Thursday, Aug. 2 (8:30 to 11 a.m. and 1:30 to 4 p.m.)
- Thursday, Aug. 9 (8:30 to 11 a.m. and 1:30 to 4 p.m.)
- Thursday, Aug. 16 (8:30 to 11 a.m. and 1:30 to 4 p.m.)
The Immunization Clinic offers free vaccinations to those participating in the Vaccines for Children program and provides near-cost vaccinations for those ineligible for that program. While the Immunization Clinic is considered an out-of-network provider for most insurance companies, the clinic can bill providers for these services as well. For a complete list of vaccinations for children, adolescents and adults available through the Immunization Clinic, please visit http://www.sccmo.org/512/Vaccinations-Prices.
A parent or legal guardian must accompany all students during their visit to the Immunization Clinic. To ensure students receive all necessary vaccinations, please bring a current vaccination record.
