New! Immunizations and Child Care Centers

Affordable Care Act and Immunizations

Some changes are required by The Affordable Care Act which was implemented in January, 2013. These include:

  • The Health Department serves Medicaid and uninsured clients and is not able to bill private insurance.
  • Insured clients are encouraged to receive immunizations at their health care provider's office since preventive vaccines are covered by most private insurance.
  • The Health Department cannot bill private insurance.

The Health Department will continue to give routine vaccinations to those who are in greatest need, including the following groups:

Children
  • Children on Medicaid
  • Children with no health insurance
  • Children whose health insurance does not cover vaccines
  • Children who are American Indian or Alaskan native (regardless of insurance coverage they do or do not have)
Adults
  • Adults with no insurance (limited number of vaccines)
  • Adults whose insurance does not cover vaccines (limited number of vaccines)
  • Adults with insurance (We may have vaccines available, but patients will need to pay full price for the vaccine and apply for reimbursement from their insurance.)

International travel clinics will continue to charge full fee to be paid for by the client at the time of service.

The Health Department will still receive federally-purchased vaccines to respond to community outbreaks.

Infant and Children Immunizations

Our mission is to provide timely immunizations to infants and children and to ensure that vaccinations required for school entry are available to school-age students. Bring your or your child's immunization records with you when you come to the clinic. The nurse will review your immunization record to determine what vaccines you or your child needs.

Services provided

  • Walk-in immunizations are available without appointment during designated times at all three Health Department sites until January 1, 2014 when appointments will be necessary at the Fort Collins and Loveland offices.
  • Other special immunization clinics as needed for disease control or special initiatives

Congratulations!

Congratulations to Bright Horizons child care center in Loveland and Hearts and Hands child care center in Fort Collins. These centers both achieved a 91% rate for required immunization reporting at their centers. This translates to a high number of young children and center staff being protected from vaccine-preventable diseases. Great job to these centers in helping to make our community a healthy place in which to live, work and play!
