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.

  

Oral Health Program PDF Print E-mail

The Oral Health Program provides education, oral health screenings, and fluoride varnish applications to children 0-5 years of age.  Screenings are provided by a dental hygienist in the WIC office, preschools, childcare facilities (both in home and center based) and schools.  Oral health education is provided to parents and children.  An educational puppet show can be performed at request. 

An oral exam is conducted for obvious signs of decay, a fluoride varnish is applied to help prevent tooth decay and a referral is made to a dental provider when necessary.  The screening is free of charge and children may be screened two times a year.  The Oral Health Program is grant funded by Siouxland Human Investment Partnership.
