Dakota County Public Health offers various immunizations for adults and children. The vaccines are supplied by federal and state programs and are offered at no cost to persons who are eligible.
Due to 2023 legislative changes, we can only provide vaccines to adults who live in Dakota County. This restriction does not apply to children 18 and younger.
Dakota County Public Health does not currently have the RSV or shingles vaccines. For more information on the RSV vaccine, check out the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's RSV Vaccine Information Statement or talk to your health care provider.
