The Florida Vaccines for Children (VFC) program is a federally administered and funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) through the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases to provide vaccines to children at no cost to the parent/guardian. In addition to local health departments, area physicians who immunize children or adolescents may also participate in the VFC program.
The Health Department can issue the form DH 680, Florida Certificate of Immunization or "Blue Card." This form is required for any child entering Florida schools (public or private, K-12, pre-schools, childcare facilities or family daycare homes). You can take your child's immunization records to the Health Department and if current we can complete the Blue Card for you. If your child's immunizations are not current, we can provide the needed immunizations or try to locate the most up to date information from another provider's office.
Immunizations are available Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 5:00pm. Bring all current immunization records with you. For more information call 352-498-1360.
