Health Center staff will now be taking appointments for the three regular immunization clinics each month. It is their hope that this change will be more convenient and efficient for clients.

Previously, all clinics were provided on a walk-in basis. A client might find themselves in and out at one clinic and waiting for long periods of time at another. Another change to the clinics is the Health Center will be requesting your private insurance card and to bill for your child’s immunizations. Therefore, insurance cards are to be taken to the next clinic attended.

Livingston County Health Center’s vaccine is provided through a program that provides vaccine for children with MoHealthNet (Medicaid) insurance, and those with no insurance coverage.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) implemented changes last year.
Now this vaccine may not be used for routine vaccination of any fully insured individuals. The
Livingston county health center has purchased vaccine for those who don’t qualify for assistance.

Livingston county admits it’s a year behind on instituting this policy. Many counties have been
doing this for awhile. For those with private insurance coverage, the department asks you to
check your policy to see if vaccinations are covered.

Immunizations are considered an essential part of protecting your child’s health from devastating diseases. It is up to parents to make sure you child is up to date on the immunizations that spare them from illness and injury. All immunizations are administered according to recommendations of the Missouri Department of Health and the American Academy of Pediatrics.
