Keep your child safe by staying up to date on vaccinations during COVID-19

While there isn’t a vaccine against COVID-19 yet, the good news is that vaccines can protect children from 14 other serious diseases. Delaying or missing vaccines could put your child, your family and your community at risk for these diseases.

Vaccinating children on time is the best way to protect them. Talk with your child’s doctor, nurse or clinic about the immunizations your child needs to stay healthy, and ask about the clinic’s safety measures to protect your family when you visit.

San Juan County Health and Community Services is offering vaccination clinics on San Juan and Orcas Islands on Wednesdays from 10:00 am-3:00 pm, by appointment only.

They are planned carefully to provide the highest level of safety for families. Vaccines can be billed to Medicaid but payment is due at the time of service for those with private insurance or who are self-pay. Receipts will be provided to submit to private insurers.

Please see the Washington State Department of Health recommended immunization schedule for children age birth to 6 years, and also the school and child care immunization vaccination schedule, including vaccines required for the 2020-2021 school year.

Please call 360-378-4474 to make an appointment. Masks are required at the time of visit.
