Immunizations for uninsured and underinsured

State law requires that children and teens have certain immunizations before they are allowed to attend public or private school. The state health department offers information on Vaccine-Preventable Diseases and Immunization Schedules that list all the required vaccinations and schedules for infants, children in child care and pre-school settings, students in grades K-12 and post-secondary education, and adults.  To sign up for an immunization clinic, please contact Todd County Health & Human Services at 320-732-4500.

Many answers to questions parents have about immunizations

Todd County Public Health participates in the Minnesota Vaccines for Children (MnVFC) Program and the Uninsured or Underinsured Adult Vaccine Program. These programs provide immunizations for individuals six weeks of age and older who do not have insurance or whose insurance does not cover immunizations and for adults who are uninsured or underinsured. You may also call Todd County Health & Human Services at (320)732-4500 to determine if you or your child is eligible to receive vaccine through the MnVFC program.

Flu clinics are provided for the public at various sites in Todd County in October and November.

Public Health also participates in the Minnesota Immunization Information Connection (MIIC) which is a confidential, computerized information system that maintains a record of a person's immunizations. MIIC is a program among health care providers, parents, public health agencies and schools aimed at preventing disease through immunization.
