Parents! Add Immunizations to your School Readiness Checklist

Books, backpacks, clothes, pencils and IMMUNIZATIONS!

We all need shots (also called vaccinations or immunizations) to help protect us from serious diseases. To help keep our community safe, Jefferson County Public Health is proudly participating in National Immunization Awareness Month.
Shots can prevent serious diseases like the flu, measles, and pneumonia. It’s important to know which shots you need and when to get them.
Everyone age 6 months and older needs to get a flu vaccine every year. Other shots work best when they are given at certain ages.

Talk to your doctor or nurse to make sure that everyone in your family gets the shots they need. Jefferson County Public Health (JCPH) provides vaccinations by appointment only at our Lakewood clinic, 645 Parfet Street, Lakewood, CO 80215. There is an administrative fee of $21.68 per vaccine. Vaccine fees for adults and children vary depending on the vaccine requested and insurance coverage. Service will not be denied due to inability to pay for any childhood vaccine, and fees may be waived.  We can bill for Medicaid, CHP+, and a number of private insurances, please check when registering. Call 303-239-7078 for an appointment or visit the JCPH immunization website for more information.
