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.

Creating “A healthy community for all” is the vision of the Siouxland District Health Department. This will be accomplished through our mission of "leading a collaborative effort to build a healthier community through improved access to health services, education and disease prevention."

Organized in 1916, the Woodbury County Health Department was responsible for improving health services and providing community education throughout Woodbury County. In 1978 the County and City Boards of Health voted to dissolve their individual boards and created Iowa’s only district health board and health department, under the authority of Chapter 137 of the Code of Iowa.

As the Public Health agency for Woodbury County, Siouxland District Health continues to evolve to address the needs of the community. Services include public health nursing, nutrition, laboratory, health planning and environmental services in Woodbury County with expanded environmental programs in ten northwest Iowa counties. For more information on these services click on the SDHD services tab to the left or view the Siouxland District Health Department Agency Brochure.  You can also learn more about SDHD by viewing our annual reports.
