It’s Time for Back-to-School Vaccines!


Keep your children and teens safe, healthy, and ready for school by making sure they are up to date with required immunizations.


Jefferson County Public Health has walk-in immunization clinics every Tuesday and Thursday between 1:00 and 4:00 pm., and will have a special late clinic on Wednesday August 29th from 3:00 to 6:00 pm. at 615 Sheridan Street, Port Townsend. No appointment necessary.  


Jefferson County Public Health bills insurance, both private and Apple Health. No insurance? No problem. Immunizations required for school attendance are available to children up to age 19 at no cost for the vaccine through the state’s Childhood Vaccine Program. Other charges include an office visit and administration fee. Sliding scale is available for those who qualify.


There are other vaccines that are recommended for children and teens by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Ask about HPV, Hepatitis A, and meningococcal vaccines as well as an annual flu shot. Meningococcal vaccine is especially important and frequently required for freshmen entering college.


A list of immunizations required for pre-school and school (K-12) are listed on the Jefferson County Public Health’s website: https://www.jeffersoncountypublichealth.org/498/Childrens-Vaccines


Parents may access their children’s immunization records from the Washington State Immunization Registry (WAIIS). It allows you to see what is recommended for their age and print out a Certificate of Immunization Status (CIS) already filled out with their vaccine history. https://myir.net/
