Vaccines are the best health care bargain available!

For more information on specific vaccines go to

Babies and young children are vulnerable to diseases, which can cause death and disability. Vaccines can protect against many childhood diseases, such as chicken pox, mumps, whooping cough, polio, measles, and many others. Vaccines should be given to children on the recommended schedule (catch up immunization schedule) so that infants and children are protected as early as possible.

Shots are required by law for children to attend public and private schools, preschools, child care facilities, and Head Start programs. For more information, see the Parent
FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) on the state website. In special cases (due to spiritual and/or cultural reasons), parents and/or college students may apply for a Nonmedical Vaccine Exemption. For more information, please visit this link: Nonmedical Vaccine Exemptions

For more information about individual vaccinations, please visit this link:  Vaccination Information Statements

Fees for more information or contact our billing office at 541-751-2432.

We are a Vaccines for Children (VFC) provider. No one will be denied state supplied vaccines due to the inability to pay.

We participate in the Shots for Tots and Teens program, sponsored by the Coos Bay-North Bend Rotary Club and Bay Area Hospital, which provides vouchers for those with no health insurances or have high deductibles.

We can bill Oregon Health Plan, and some insurance companies, such as Regency Blue Cross.
