*Insurance Announcement*
Beginning on July 10, 2014, Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) began accepting private insurance for payment of adult and child immunizations.  Please present a copy of your photo ID and current insurance card at check-in.  A claim will be submitted to your insurance company for reimbursement, and you will be notified with a statement from OSDH of your responsibility for any co-pays, deductibles, or charges that are denied by your insurance company.  Some sliding scale fees may apply.  Payment is not required for services.  Please do not allow your inability to pay restrict future visits.

Childhood Immunizations

If your child has private insurance, a claim may be submitted to your insurance company for reimbursement.  You will be notified with a statement from OSDH of your responsibility for any co-pays, deductibles or charges that are denied by your insurance company.  Please review your insurance coverage prior to your visit.  Payment is not required for services.  Please do not allow your inability to pay restrict future visits.  The Comanche County Health Department does not charge a fee for Vaccines for Children (VFC) eligible children through the age of 18 (VFC Eligibility Requirements).

The following immunizations are available for children through the age of 18:

  • DTap, TDaP and TD (tetanus, diptheria, acellular pertussis; tetanus and diptheria)

  • Polio

  • Varicella (chickenpox)

What should I bring to an immunization visit?

When coming in for immunizations, be sure to bring the following:

  • Current copy of your shot record.  This makes it easier for our staff to see which shots you need, and it also helps decrease your waiting time.
  • Child's Social Security number.
  • Sooner Care number, if applicable.
  • If you are accompanying a minor other than your own, please make sure to have a letter of authorization or guardianship. This allows our staff to give shots to that individual.

How can I get copies of my child’s shot records?

If you or your child have ever received immunizations through any county health department and you need a copy of that shot record, you may request a copy at the front desk.  One will be provided to you at the end of your visit.  For additional information, contact Leah Mays at (580) 248-5890 or email LeahS@health.ok.gov.  For more information on vaccination schedules, frequently asked questions, and other items please see OSDH Immunizations Services.  For more information on school immunizations click here.
