Free vaccinations available

There are several free back-to-school vaccination clinics available throughout Clark County.

Certain vaccinations are required in order for children to attend school. Children who do not meet the vaccination requirements may be excluded from school until they do meet the requirements.

Vaccination requirements are listed on the Washington State Department of Health website at

Approximately, 4.2 percent of the state’s kindergarten through 12th grade students were exempted for religious or personal reasons in the 2015-16 school year. Clark County’s vaccine exemption rate is 6.7 percent, and ranges from 0 to 33.3 percent in local schools.

“This is concerning because many diseases require high vaccination rates to ensure there’s enough widespread immunity in the population to protect others who have not developed immunity or are unable to get vaccinated,” said Dr. Alan Melnick, health officer and Public Health director.

All vaccines required for school are free up to age 19. Some providers may charge an administrative fee. Parents who can’t afford the fee may ask to have it waived.

Families without a regular health care provider can get free back-to-school vaccinations at the following locations. They are asked to bring their children’s immunization records.
