Getting your child immunize can be inexpensive. If your infant or child does not have health coverage or parents/guardians can’t afford immunization cost, the Imperial County Public Health Department provides alternatives ways for infant and children ages 2 months to 18 years to obtain their immunizations at a low-cost or no-cost.
If you don’t have insurance, your child may be able to qualify for up to no-cost through a Vaccine for Children (VFC) state program that is available at the Imperial County Health Department.
