Immunization Program

What We Do

Nevada County Public Health offers childhood and adult immunizations, including seasonal flu shots, at our main office in Grass Valley during our regular Immunization Clinic Hours (PDF)​ and during our special vaccine clinics out in the community (see below for more detail).


The vaccines offered to children are part of the "Vaccines for Children" (VFC) program. A child must be 18 years or younger, who has:
  • No health insurance, OR 
  • is eligible for Medi-Cal, OR 
  • has insurance that does not cover vaccines, OR 
  • is Native American or Alaskan Native
A limited supply of private pay childhood vaccines are available for purchase for children that are not eligible for the VFC program.

Most adult vaccines are covered by Medi-Cal, Medi-Cal Managed Care  or Blue Shield PPO/EPO.  We also have private pay adult vaccines available for purchase.

Questions About Vaccines & Immunizations

The laws in California recently changed for school-age kids and vaccines. For more information about SB277 and the current immunization laws, read some helpful SB277 FAQs and information from the California Department of Public Health​.

If you are a parent with questions about immunizations for your child, we encourage you to read this Vaccine Safety Handout (PDF).
