Effective March 1, the Will County Health Department is increasing the administration fee charged to clients for childhood immunizations.
The administration fee for childhood vaccines will increase from $16.75 to $23.75 for each dose of vaccine administered. Will County Health Department provides childhood vaccines through the Vaccines For Children (VFC) Program.
Children eligible for the VFC program are those with Medicaid, no insurance and those who are underinsured, meaning they have insurance but it does not cover their shots. Children with private insurance that covers their shots are encouraged to seek immunizations from their doctor or other private health care providers.
Fees for adult immunizations will also be adjusted in March. Adult vaccination pricing is dependent on prices charged by the vaccine manufacturers.
