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.

  

Paternity Testing PDF Print E-mail

SDHD collects paternity samples for several private companies.  SDHD does not do the actual testing itself.

Samples are usually collected via buccal (cheek) swabs.

People interested in paternity testing should contact one of the private companies.  These companies will explain the testing procedures and discuss costs.  Once an agreement is made between the client and the company, the company will contact SDHD to set up the collection.

SDHD does not receive test results.  Those arrangements may be made between the client and the testing company.

A few of the companies that SDHD works with are linked below, but the list is not exhaustive and there are many different companies that do this type of testing.
