Immunization Clinic is open by appointment only at this time. You can call 812-222-0422 to make an appointment during our open hours.

We have also relocated to a different suite inside the Medical Arts Plaza to help with physical distancing. Please use the door at the end of the building. Signs will direct you to the correct location.

Due To COVID-19 We Are Open By Appointment Only

Due to the need to institute social distancing in order to reduce the spread of infection, we are not having first-come, first-served clinics for the foreseeable future. Instead, we have re-opened the Immunization Clinic – by appointment only.

Immunization Clinic

The DCMH Immunization Clinic is available to all those in Decatur County and the surrounding counties that are in need of vaccinations from child to adult.  We work with a national program called “Vaccines for Children” (VFC).  Through VFC we are able to provide childhood recommended vaccinations to children younger than 19 who do not have insurance or are underinsured, with vaccinations free of charge.  We also provide vaccinations to insured children and adults and are able to bill insurances.  Please bring insurance cards (if applicable) and immunization records (if you have them).  We will look in the state registry, CHIRP, to determine what you or your child needs per recommended guidelines.

Please Read – *New* in 2020 is the requirement of two doses of Hepatitis A for all students. Hepatitis A vaccination was not part of routine childhood vaccination schedules until 1999 (now done prior to age 2).  Many of our middle school and high school students are lacking one or both of the two dose series.  Students beginning kindergarten, sixth grade, and seniors have immunizations due at these milestones, in addition to the students who still need Hepatitis A vaccinations.
