Carter County Health Department provides services which reduce the number of vaccine-preventable diseases. Vaccines are responsible for the control of many infectious diseases that were once common in this country. However, the viruses and bacteria that cause vaccine-preventable diseases and death still exist and can be passed on to people who are not protected by vaccines. Vaccine-preventable diseases have a costly impact, resulting in doctors visits, hospitalizations, and premature deaths. Sick children can also cause parents to lose time from work.
We offer Immunizations to all persons without regard to religion, race, color, national origin, creed, disability, or sex.
All of the childhood immunizations are offered at no cost to you if you have no insurance. If you have SoonerCare/Medicaid, we ask that you bring your child's medical card. For clients with private insurance we also ask that you bring your insurance card with you the day of service.
For adults we offer:
Tetanus, which should be updated every ten years. There is no charge for this vaccine.
Tetanus with Pertussis (TDAP), Varicella (Chickenpox), and MMR (Measles, Mumps, and Rubella) are also offered at no charge.
Meningitis Vaccine is free to clients ages 19 and over who have no insurance coverage regardless of income. .
Gardasil (HPV) vaccine is free to clients age 19-26 who have no insurance coverage regardless of income.
Pneumonia vaccine is free to clients below age 65 who do not have insurance coverage regardless of income. Clients who have private insurance will need to provide their insurance card and we will submit a claim to your insurance. If the claim is denied you may receive a bill for the cost of the vaccine.
