IMMUNIZATIONS

Need a copy of your child's immunization record? Click Here. Must have name, date of birth, and a Social Security or Medicaid number.

To better serve our clients, effective April 1, 2014 all immunizations for infants, children and adults will be by appointment only. SDHD will no longer offer walk-in children's immunization clinics. This transition will reduce wait
times for individuals and families and allow for more personal services. To schedule an appointment, call 712-279-6119 and ask for the clinic.

Immunization eligibility information for Vaccine for Children's (VFC) program in English and Spanish

All clinics held at SDHD, 1014 Nebraska St.

There is a $10.00 administration fee per child for all non-Iowa Medicaid children receiving vaccinations through our immunization clinics.  We accept cash, check, credit or debit cards for payment at this time. In addition, we are unable to accept children with Hawk-I coverage.  These children should be taken to their physician for immunizations.

 Avian Influenza

 

A highly pathogenic strain of avian influenza (H5N2) has been identified in commercial poultry flocks in Northwest Iowa and other Midwestern states.  The term "highly pathogenic" does not indicate that the virus is a serious problem for humans, the term is used to describe the effects that the virus has on poultry that have been infected.  The virus is spread by waterfowl, gulls, and shorebirds as they migrate through Iowa.
 
This strain has not caused human illness and is not transmitted via food; thus, the risk to the public health is very low.  Workers who have had direct contact with infected birds do have a low level of risk for infection and health officials are monitoring these individuals for signs of infection.  Person to person transmission of this virus is not expected at this time.  It should be noted that this strain of virus is different from a similar virus in Asia that has caused a small amount of human infections.
