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.

Healthy ChildrenHealthy Opportunities for Parents to Experience Success - Healthy Families Iowa (HOPES-HFI) is a researched-based home visiting program for families that begins during pregnancy or at the birth of a child and can continue for up to 4 years of the child's age. Siouxland District Health Department has been providing this program in Woodbury County since 1997. Our program is nationally accredited by Healthy Families America.

 

The program follows the national Healthy Families America model of home visiting. A tool is used to identify level of risk and screens for the family conditions and characteristics that impact child growth, development, and health. Examples include family coping skills, parenting skills, and family functioning. Families participate voluntarily in the program and receive home visiting and referrals from specially trained staff. Program staff work with each family to develop a family plan to address the needs identified in the assessment.

 

Healthy Families Iowa (HFI) Program Goals:

  1. Promote optimal child health and development.
  2. Improve family coping skills and functioning.
  3. Promote positive parenting and family interaction.
  4. Prevent child abuse and neglect, as well as infant mortality and morbidity.
