Child Immunizations

Canton City Health Department (CCHD) strives to ensure that children are protected from diseases which can cause serious illness, permanent damage or death. Diseases that once spread quickly and killed thousands are now largely controlled by vaccines.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends vaccinating children against most vaccine-preventable diseases by the time they are two years old because these diseases are more common and more deadly among infants and young children.

Vaccination protects not only the child receiving the vaccine but also those in the child's community.

Vaccine for Children Program

  • The VFC program is administered at the national level by CDC
  • VFC helps families by providing free vaccines to children
  • Children through 18 years of age who meet at least one of the following criteria are eligible to receive VFC vaccine:
    • Medicaid eligible: A child who is eligible for the Medicaid program (“Medicaid-eligible” and “Medicaid-enrolled” are equivalent and refer to children with health insurance covered by a state Medicaid program).
    • Uninsured: A child who has no health insurance coverage
    • American Indian or Alaska Native: As defined by the Indian Health Care Improvement Act (25 U.S.C. 1603)

Sliding Fee Discount Program

CCHD offers a Sliding Fee Discount Program for those that qualify.  The Sliding Fee Discount Program is based on verification of income and family size.

Adult Immunizations

Your need for immunizations does not end when you reach adulthood. The following immunizations are available for adults:

  • Flu
  • Tetanus with the pertussis component (Tdap)

Q: Why do I need a Tdap instead of a regular tetanus booster?
A: Immunity to pertussis (whooping cough) usually weakens as we grow older. Teenagers and adults infected with pertussis can infect infants and children who have not completed their childhood vaccination series. Young children are at the greatest risk for complications associated with pertussis illness.

Diseases that once spread quickly and killed thousands are now largely controlled by vaccines. Vaccination protects not only the person receiving the vaccine, but also those in the community.
