New! Immunizations and Child Care Centers
Child care centers in Larimer County are licensed by the Department of Human Services. Certain health and safety standards must be met in order to protect the children attending the center.
Beginning January 1, 2014 the Health Department will no longer offer walk-in immunizations in its Fort Collins and Loveland offices. Immunizations will be given by appointment only.
This change is necessary because more clients that the department has traditionally served through its immunization clinics are receiving vaccinations through their primary care providers. This has lowered the number of clients who come to the Health Department for their vaccinations. Appointments will allow the Health Deptartment to plan for staffing and adequate supply of particular vaccines.
People who have health insurance must visit their doctor for immunizations. At this time the Health Department can only bill Medicaid, not private insurance.
As of January 1, 2013, the Health Department began limiting its vaccination services for most clients with insurance. "Insured" is defined as anyone with insurance that covers the cost of vaccine. The change is mandated by new federal policies under the Affordable Care Act.
Because of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), more clients the department has traditionally served should get vaccines at their primary care providers. In most cases, preventive vaccines will be paid for by insurance.
The Health Department will only be able to give vaccine to those who are in greatest need and will continue to provide immunizations for the following groups:
International travel clinics will continue to charge full fee to be paid for by the client at the time of service.
The Health Department will still receive federally-purchased vaccines to respond to community outbreaks.
For information on the Affordable Care Act and preventive care coverage go to pricelessprevention.org.
Our mission is to provide timely immunizations to infants and children and to ensure that vaccinations required for school entry are available to school-age students. Bring your or your child's immunization records with you when you come to the clinic. The nurse will review your immunization record to determine what vaccines you or your child needs.
Travel immunizations are available to protect Larimer County residents from communicable diseases while traveling abroad.
Clients receiving travel vaccines or travel counseling will be charged a visit fee in addition to the charge for the vaccines. The visit fee is $55 for the first person and $25 for each additional person. Prices for vaccines change frequently, call 498-6700 to speak with a travel nurse about what vaccines you may need for your specific destination.
