Wayne County Public Health Clinics
N O T I C E
This notice is in regards to children who attend Wayne County Public Health Immunization Clinics. As of August 1st, 2011, Wayne County Public Health is required by the New York State Department of Health to charge an administration fee for each vaccine a child receives at our Immunization Clinic. However, there is no cost for a clinic appointment.
Wayne County Public Health can bill Medicaid, Managed Medicaid, and some third-party insurances for this administration fee. For all other types of insurance or if you do not have health insurance, administration fees are determined by a sliding fee scale based on your family income. For many families, there will be no fee.
Wayne County Public Health Staff will now need to gather health insurance information and family income information on children and adults who do not have health insurance. Please make sure you bring this information with you to your scheduled clinic appointment.
If you have any questions regarding this new fee or concerns about your ability to pay this fee, please feel free to call Wayne County Public Health at 315-946-5749 or toll free at 1-800-724-1170.
As of October 2012 Wayne County Public Health will only be able to immunize VFC qualified children. This is a NYSDOH mandate. To qualify a child must meet the following criteria: American Indian, uninsured, underinsured, Medicaid, and Child Health Plus. The administration fee remains in affect. The Vaccine For Children program is for 2month-18 years of age.
