Perry County Health Department provides immunizations to both children and adults by appointment. We are closed on all State holidays.
Parental permission is needed for all children under the age of 18 for them to receive the immunizations. Also, if the child/children have not received all their immunizations from the Perry County Health Department, you will need to bring along the child/children's immunization record and insurance card if applicable.
For a Recommended Immunization Schedule check out the CDC website or contact the Health Department.
Immunizations are given in accordance with the Missouri Immunization Schedule and in accordance with the Missouri Dept. of Health, American Academy of Pediatrics Red Book, Center For Disease Control (CDC), and Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices.
Senior Vaccination Project
With funding made available through the Senior Services Tax Commission, the Perry County Health Department has implemented the Senior Vaccination Project.
Guidelines for receiving vaccinations through the Senior Vaccination Project:
PERRY COUNTY RESIDENTS
- Must be 55 years of age or older
- Must be a Perry County Resident (must show proof of residency)
- If client has Insurance that pays all or a portion of the cost of the vaccine and administration, the Perry County Health Department will bill for the amount their insurance covers and the Senior Vaccination Project may cover some of the out of pocket cost to the client.
- If the client does not have insurance, the Senior Vaccination Project will cover a portion of the cost to the client.
(Due to the frequent change in the price of the vaccine, you may call our office for the current costs)
No client who meets the residency stipulation will be refused service due to inability to pay.
Immunization exemption forms (medical, religious, immunizations in progress, and parent/guardian) will be able to be accessed and printed online. Original forms (or cards) obtained from DHSS or local public health agencies are no longer required for filing with the school health office or child care facility. A medical exemption will continue to only be authorized upon signed certification by a licensed doctor of medicine (MD), doctor of osteopathy (DO), or his or her designee indicating that either the immunization would seriously endanger the student’s health or life or the student has documentation of disease or laboratory evidence of immunity to the disease. An in progress form will continue to require a signature by a physician, public health nurse or designee.
