NOTICE!!!

The Warrick County Health Department can still provide immunizations for your children. We just have some new guidelines and new ways to provide this service.

-If you have private insurance,it is imperative that the insured contact their insurance company to verify coverage for immunizations. Please be aware, if the insurance provider does not cover vaccinations you will receive a bill for the vaccines your child received from a third party billing company and  vaccines can be very costly. You will need to bring your insurance card at the time of your appointment so insurance verification can be obtained.

-For those with no insurance, those on Medicaid or Hoosier Healthwise or those whose insurance does not cover immunizations everything has stayed the same.  We will need a copy of the Medicaid card.

-As always you must bring your immunization card/record!

-If you do not have your insurance card, Medicaid card and immunization record you will be asked to reschedule and return when you have those available.

For a schedule of immunizations required for school year 2012-2013 see below.

For any questions please give our office a call at (812) 897-6105 ext. 2.
