Immunizations

Immunizations
Vaccination is a simple and effective method of preventing diseases. Routine adult and childhood immunizations that prevent a variety of contagious diseases are offered at Park County Public Health at a low cost for uninsured children and adults. Due to changes in healthcare legislation under the Affordable Care Act, preventive vaccines are now covered 100% with no deductible through most insurance plans. Park County Public Health is able to bill Medicaid, CHP+ and Medicare for vaccines. If you have another insurance plan, please contact your doctor to receive preventive vaccines. Please check with your insurance plan to verify coverage for vaccines.

Park County Public Health offers vaccinations at scheduled clinics and by appointment. For information, clinic schedules or to schedule an appointment, contact Public Health by calling the Fairplay Office at (719) 836-4154 or the Bailey Office at (303) 816-5970.

We carry limited vaccines for travel but we are unable to carry all travel-related vaccines that you may need for your trip. For comprehensive travel vaccine services, contact Jefferson County Public Health at (303) 232-6301 or Chaffee County Public Health at (719) 539-4510. Since most insurance plans, including Medicare, do not cover travel vaccines full payment will be required at the time of service. Please contact Public Health at (719) 836-4154 or (303) 816-5970 for more information.

For more information on immunizations, see Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or Vaccine Information for the Public and Health Professionals.
