|How much do immunizations cost?
||Children: There is no charge for routine recommended vaccines, but there is a $15.00 administration fee per shot and a $12.00 office fee. A sliding fee scale is available based on family size and income. No one will be denied state-supplied vaccine because of inability to pay the administration and office fees.
|Where can I get a copy of my immunization record?
|| You can call to request a copy of your immunization record for any shots given at the health department. For vaccines given elsewhere, contact the health care provider that gave the vaccines. Many health care practices including the Whatcom County Health Department participate in the Washington State Immunization Registry. The Registry, however, may not show all vaccines given.
