Our Immunization program helps minimize the occurrence of vaccine preventable diseases and increases rates of completed immunizations in pre-school age children by making clinics accessible and affordable to parents and/or caregivers. Sullivan County Public Health Services is now providing one immunization clinic which is held on the first Wednesday of every month from 4pm to 7pm. For those who are unable to make this time, we are available for immunizations during the week from 9 am to 5 pm by appointment.
We are currently only able to accept Fidelis and Hudson Health or cash only for payment. For those who are uninsured and or under- insured we provide a sliding scale. Please bring in proof of insurance and immunization records for your child. Children under age 19 and college students are also welcome.Childhood Diseases are Preventable
