Your child’s immunization schedule is an extremely important healthcare measure that should be kept up-to-date. Vaccines have contributed to a significant reduction in many childhood diseases, such as diphtheria, polio, measles, and whooping cough. It is now rare for American children to experience the devastating effects of these illnesses. Infant deaths due to childhood diseases have nearly disappeared in the United States and other countries with high vaccination coverage. But the germs that cause vaccine-preventable diseases and death still exist, and can be passed on to people who are not protected by vaccines.
Certain immunizations are crucial to your child’s health, as well as admittance into daycare and specific school grade levels. The following link will give you all of the information on Florida’s immunizations requirements for school entry:
Immunizations are offered for children 2 months old – 18 years old at no cost. There is a form referred to as the DH 680, Florida Certification of Immunization or "Blue Card". The form is required for any child entering Florida schools (public or private, K-12), pre-schools, childcare facilities or family day care homes. There is a minimal cost for transferring the records.
Below is a price list of the vaccines that we offer at Osceola County Health Department. There is a service fee of $15.00 per visit. TB testing is not available on Thursdays.
