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.

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.
