Many communicable diseases among children are preventable. However, fewer than half the children in Texas receive the immunizations they need by age two.
If not protected against the illnesses these immunizations will prevent, children can develop life-threatening medical conditions including brain damage, deafness, pneumonia, and seizures. Some diseases, like Rubella, can be spread to pregnant women and cause miscarriage or birth defects. Adult diseases that used to be common can now be prevented with immunizations.
All services are available to children who are uninsured or Medicaid recipients. Services are also available to uninsured adults.
Services are by appointment only, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Call 512-972-5520.
Walk-in clinics are available one Saturday a month and do not require an appointment.
At the North Austin St. John Clinic, it is the third Saturday of each month from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m (at 7500 Blessing Avenue, Austin, 78752).
At the Far South Austin clinic, it is the first Saturday of each month from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. (at 405 West Stassney, Austin, 78745).
The clinics are now also open Monday evenings until 6:45 pm.
Children: $10 per dose of vaccine. Adults: $25 per dose of vaccine. Shot Records: $5. No one is refused services if they are unable to pay.
