All children in Washington are eligible for free routine childhood vaccinations through the Vaccines for Children Program. HCS will not be charging vaccine administration fees at these back-to-school clinics. If you are not sure which vaccines your child needs, HCS public health nurses will be able to discuss vaccine schedules with you and can help look up your child’s vaccine record. If you have other vaccine questions prior to the clinics, you may reach a public health nurse by calling 360-370-7511.
