Scott Co. immunization clinics held on Mondays

Scott County Public Health offers Walk-In Immunization Clinics Monday afternoons from 1 to 5 PM at 792 Canterbury Road South, Suite A160 in Shakopee. No clinics are held on legal holidays. The clinic office is located in the Workforce Development Center at the opposite end of the building of the WIC office.

Children must be eligible for the state-funded Minnesota Vaccines for Children (MnVFC) Program to receive immunizations. This includes children 6 weeks through age 18 who are uninsured, on Medical Assistance or MinnesotaCare or who have insurance that does not cover vaccines.

There is no charge for vaccine for anyone who qualifies for the MnVFC Program but a donation of $10 per immunization is appreciated to help cover administrative costs. Vaccines available include all immunizations required for Day Cares, Head Start or public school enrollment: DTap, Td, IPV, Hib, MMR, Prevnar, Hepatitis B and Varicella.

Consent forms for children under 18 years must be signed by a parent or guardian. Parents should bring their child's previous immunization records with them. Immunizations given at public clinics should not be substituted for routine well-child visits with health care providers.

Other vaccines also available on the MnVFC Program are Hepatitis A for children starting at 12 - 24 months, Rotateq (rotavirus vaccine) for infants at 2, 4 and 6 months, Tdap for adolescents at 11 - 12 years, Menactra (meningitis vaccine) for adolescents at 11 - 18 years and Gardasil (human papillomavirus HPV vaccine) for girls and boys 11 - 18 years and women 26 years or younger enrolled in a Minnesota Health Care Program.

Low cost vaccines are also available for adults with payment by cash or check only. Scott County does not bill private insurance. Vaccines available are Flu, Hepatitis A and B, Gardasil (HPV), MMR (measles, mumps, rubella), PPSV (pneumonia), Td (tetanus diphtheria), Tdap, Varicella (chickenpox) and Zostavax (shingles).

Refugees and immigrants who are completing immunizations to qualify for a green card as required by CIS are eligible for some free vaccines. Please bring your immunization record and medical card, if available, with you to the clinic. For further information, call 952-496-8555.
