Dakota County Public Health offers immunization clinics

Residents who are uninsured or whose insurance does not cover vaccines can receive immunizations during upcoming Dakota County Public Health immunization clinics. In addition to the uninsured or underinsured, immunization clinics are also open to children enrolled on a Minnesota health care program (Medical Assistance, MinnesotaCare or Prepaid Medical Assistance Program) or are American Indian or Alaskan Native. Eligibility information is available online at www.dakotacounty.us; search “immunization clinics.”

The flu vaccine is available in addition to other recommended adult and childhood immunizations. A donation of $20 for each vaccination is suggested, but people who qualify for reduced-fee immunizations will not be turned away if they are not able to pay the donation. Cash and checks are accepted; no credit or debit cards.
