Immunizations

Immunizations protect people from many infectious diseases that once caused serious illness and sometimes death. Epidemics of polio, smallpox, whooping cough and other diseases have all but faded into the distant past. But the germs that cause these diseases often remain in the population and can re-emerge under the right conditions. So immunization of children, adolescents, and adults for these diseases is generally recognized as sound medical practice.

The Branch-Hillsdale-St. Joseph Community Health Agency offers:

Immunizations to children (Ages 0-6 and 7-18) and adults (including pregnant women) during scheduled clinics.

  • The Vaccines for Children provides immunizations without charge for the uninsured or the underinsured (those without insurance coverage for vaccinations).  Donations are accepted at the time of service.  For more information on the VFC program, which provides free vaccines for children who are enrolled in Medicaid, have no insurance, are American Indian or Alaskan Native, or are under-insured visit the CDC's web site.

  • Managed care clients whose coverage includes the expense of immunizations must go to their assigned managed care provider for routine immunizations.

  • If you do not qualify for the Vaccines for Children program and/or have no physician you may be able to receive the immunizations through our private pay program.

  • Meningococcal vaccination is available for college students and others at risk.

  • Special fall and winter clinics for flu shots and pneumococcal vaccination of adults.

  • Scheduled Travel Clinic Appointments for travel abroad.

Contraindications to Childhood Vaccinations

This guide is designed to help immunization providers determine what common symptoms and conditions should contraindicate vaccination and which ones should not. It takes the place of the 2000 Guide to Contraindications to Childhood Vaccination and, unlike that and previous guides, contains information on all licensed U.S. vaccines, not just pediatric vaccines.

Flu Shots

 

Travel Immunizations
 

Vaccine Information Statements

As required under the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, all health care providers in the United States who administer vaccines listed under the act, are required to provide Vaccine Informational Statements (VIS) to the parent or legal guardian of the recipient of the immunization, or to any adult to whom the provider is vaccinating. In Michigan, the VIS also includes a statement explaining the Michigan Care Improvement Registry (MCIR). Michigan requires that this statement be included on all VIS distributed within the State.
