Our professional nurses offer immunizations to keep children and adults in our community healthy and safe from vaccine-preventable diseases.

Seasonal flu shots will be offered on a walk-in basis at the Health Department Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. We can give flu shots to anyone 6 months old or older. You can pay for your flu shot with cash, or we can bill your private insurance, Medicaid or Medicare. Be sure to bring your insurance card.

We also offer the following immunizations:

  • Routine Childhood Immunizations
  • Hepatitis-A and Hepatitis-B
  • MMR Vaccine – Measles, Mumps, and Rubella
  • HPV (Human Papillomavirus) Vaccine - Cervical Cancer Vaccine
  • Polio Vaccine
  • Pneumonia (Pneumococcal Vaccine)
  • Tetanus/Diphtheria (Td) Vaccine
  • Tetanus/Diphtheria/Pertussis (Tdap) Vaccine
  • Varicella Vaccine – Chickenpox
  • Influenza (Flu) Vaccine
Immunizations are offered at our main office on the ground floor of the Phelps County Courthouse. No appointment is necessary, just walk in Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm.

Some fees may apply. We accept some insurance plans, but you may still be required to make the co-payment. Uninsured or underinsured people may be able to receive certain vaccinations for a very low fee. Children enrolled in MoHealthNet can receive free shots through the Vaccine for Children program.

To check on the price for a vaccine, please call (573) 458-6010.
