A donation of $20 for each vaccination is suggested, but people who qualify for reduced-fee immunizations will not be turned away if they cannot pay the donation. Cash and checks are accepted; no credit or debit cards.
Minors under age 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian or have a signed authorization for another adult to accompany them. This form is available online. Please bring all immunization records with you to the clinic.
