Vaccines are the best health care bargain available!
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.

Cost of Immunizations
Charges for immunizations are based on the cost we pay for the vaccine and an administration fee. Costs for adult immunizations vary. See 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 Bay Area Rotary Club, 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 Regence Blue Cross.
