Jefferson County – It’s time for back-to-school immunizations and numerous Jefferson County clinics are offering vaccines. These clinics include:

  • Jefferson County Public Health, 615 Sheridan Street, Port Townsend, call 360.385-9400
  • Jefferson Healthcare Primary Care, 915 Sheridan Street, Port Townsend, call 360.379.8031
  • Jefferson Healthcare Family Medicine, 1010 Sheridan Street, Port Townsend, call 360.385.3500
  • Jefferson Healthcare Internal Medicine, 934 Sheridan Street, Port Townsend, call 360.385.5388

All immunizations required for school attendance are available to children up to age 19 at no cost for the vaccine through the state’s Childhood Vaccine Program. There may be a charge for the office visit and an administration fee to give the vaccine. All of the clinics listed above bill insurance, both private and Apple Health. People without insurance and who can’t afford the administration fee can ask for it to be waived.

There are other vaccines that are recommended for children and teens by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) but are not required for school attendance. Ask your provider or Jefferson County Public Health about HPV, Hepatitis A, and meningococcal vaccines as well as an annual flu shot. Meningococcal vaccine is especially important and frequently required for freshmen entering college.

Jefferson County Public Health has walk-in immunization clinics every Tuesday and Thursday between 1:00 and 4:00 pm at 615 Sheridan Street, Port Townsend. The Jefferson Healthcare clinics offer immunizations either with a doctor’s appointment or as a nurse-only visit. Immunizations at Jefferson Healthcare Clinics are by appointment only, for walk-in appointments please go to Jefferson County Public Health.

A list of immunizations required for pre-school and school are listed on the Washington State Department of Health website in the section titled For Parents.

Parents may access their children’s immunization records from the Washington State Immunization Registry (WA-IIS). It allows you to see what is recommended for their age and print out a Certificate of Immunization Status (CIS) already filled out with their vaccine history.
