MORE INFORMATION ABOUT IMMUNIZATIONS
Eligible children from birth through 18 years of age may receive free, federally-funded vaccine through the Vaccines for Children Program (VFC). However, an administration fee of $20 is charged for vaccines but will slide according to income. Children from birth through 18 years of age who meet at least one of the following criteria are eligible to receive VFC vaccine: TennCare, Uninsured, American Indian or Alaska Native or Underinsured.
If you have private insurance, private stock vaccine is available. Money is collected at time of visit by cash, check, or credit card. We can bill CoverKids but we do not bill private insurance at this time. However, we will provide a patient services ledger if you wish to seek reimbursement.
