Individuals ages 6 months and older who are seeking vaccinations may schedule a vaccination appointment with the St. Charles County Department of Public Health (SCCDPH) by calling the Immunizations Clinic at 636.949.1857. PLEASE NOTE: Individuals ages 17 and younger must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the time of the vaccination.
What will the cost be? Now that COVID vaccines are being sold commercially, these immunizations are no longer offered free of charge to the public. Most insurance plans – including Medicare – are mandated by law to cover COVID vaccinations, but DPH does not process insurance. Insured recipients will need to pay out-of-pocket and seek reimbursement from their insurer if they obtain their COVID-19 vaccination at DPH. The cost for the Pfizer vaccine stocked by DPH is $122 per dose for adults and children aged 12 and up. The dose for children ages 5 through 11 will be $87 and the vaccine for children under 5 – including babies 6 months and up – costs $67 per dose. Vaccines will continue to be provided for free or at low-cost for eligible uninsured or underinsured individuals.
