Hamilton County Public Health offers immunizations at several sites across the county. Any child within the Heath District’s jurisdiction who has Medicaid, who has no insurance, or whose insurance does not provide children’s vaccine coverage is eligible. We offer a small number of vaccines to adults who have no health insurance. An appointment is needed for all immunizations, please call 513-946-7882. Due to state requirements, there may be additional eligibility requirements for some vaccines.
Please remember to bring shot records for everyone receiving a vaccine.
NEW FOR 2016-2017 SCHOOL YEAR: The State of Ohio requires all incoming seventh and twelfth grade students to submit proof that they have had the meningococcal vaccine before starting the 2016-2017 school year.
