Immunizations Needed

Immunizing your infant or child with the current recommended childhood vaccines mobilizes the body's natural defenses against dangerous infectious diseases. Children through age 18 years are eligible to receive vaccines at no charge through the Vaccines for Children (VFC) program if any of the following apply: they are uninsured, Native American Indian, Native Alaskan, or their insurance policy does not cover vaccines. Infants, children and adolescents must be accompanied by their parent or guardian to receive immunizations.

THD currently accepts Cigna, Community Care, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Health Choice, Medicare and SoonerCare Medicaid for immunizations. Coverage can vary among different insurance plans. Please bring your insurance card and photo ID with you.  It is always advisable to check with your insurance provider for coverage specifics before receiving immunizations, as you may be responsible for charges that are not covered by your insurance policy. A fee will be charged for clients with private insurance (other than those listed above) to be immunized at THD clinics in order to cover the cost of the vaccine.
