Immunization Program

Immunization Services

The Immunization Program provides routine child and adult immunizations. This program also works closely with pediatricians throughout Nashville to ensure that children age birth to 24 months are receiving the recommended series of immunizations.

Childhood Immunizations

Eligible children from birth through 18 years of age may receive free, federally-funded vaccine through the Vaccines for Children Program (VFC). However, an administration fee of $20 is charged for vaccines but will slide according to income.
Children from birth through 18 years of age who meet at least one of the following criteria are eligible to receive VFC vaccine:

  • TennCare
  • Uninsured
  • American Indian or Alaska Native 
  • Underinsured

If you have private insurance, private stock vaccine is available. Money is collected at time of visit by cash, check, or credit card. We can bill CoverKids but we do not bill private insurance at this time. However, we will provide a patient services ledger if you wish to seek reimbursement.

Private Pay Vaccine Charges

Adult Immunizations

Free federal vaccine is available for uninsured adults age 19-64 for certain recommended vaccines. However, an administration fee of $20 is charged for vaccines but will slide according to income.

We can bill Medicaid and Medicare for adult vaccines. We do not bill any other private insurance at this time. However, if you have private insurance and you want to seek reimbursement then you may want to check with your company first and see if they will accept our Patient Service Ledger as proof of vaccination for reimbursement purposes.  Money is collected at time of visit by cash, check, or credit card.
