Keeping your children safe from harm is one of your most important and dedicated tasks as a parent. We are also dedicated to providing opportunities for you as Syringeconcerned parents to immunize your children and keep them healthy and disease-free! Routine childhood immunizations and adult immunizations are offered at each clinic on the following schedule:
- Monday – Wednesday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. by appointment.
Lafayette County Health Department (LCHD) believes in the effectiveness of vaccines to prevent serious illness and to save lives.
LCHD will offer adult and child immunizations recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and follow its recommended vaccine schedule. LCHD will work with clients to establish a catch-up schedule if client is behind on vaccines. In some cases, we may consider altering the schedule to accommodate parental reservations.
LCHD does not provide vaccine exemption cards. Information on how to get a vaccine exemption card through DHSS can be located by following this link: https://health.mo.gov/living/wellness/immunizations/schoolrequirements.php
The childhood to adult immunization schedule is listed below. To view the immunization requirements for daycare and school-age children look at the table below.
You also have the opportunity to have all of your children’s immunization records reviewed and placed in the Missouri State Immunization Registry from birth to 18 years. This allows quick access to immunization records at any health department in Missouri. Just bring your child’s immunization record to the Lafayette County Health Department for entry into the system.
