Free Vaccine Clinics

Free for families without access to vaccines

Auburn, Calif. – Placer County Public Health is offering free back-to-school immunization clinics for children who may have difficulty accessing vaccines needed to attend school.

“Our back-to-school vaccine clinics continue to provide opportunities for families on Medi-Cal or without insurance to obtain the vaccines their children need to avoid vaccine-preventable diseases and attend school,” said Michael Romero, director of Public Health.

Auburn & Roseville

Clinics in August and September will be offered in both Auburn and Roseville. To schedule, parents or guardians should contact 530-886-1883 or email [email protected]. Click here for a flyer with more information.

Last school year, Public Health provided 1,508 routine childhood vaccinations to 555 children across the county, partnering with several local nonprofit organizations on outreach.

“These clinics can be a lifeline for many families who face barriers to access healthcare.”

Although families are encouraged to visit their regular healthcare provider whenever feasible, these clinics are intended to meet the needs of families who are without health insurance or have Medi-Cal insurance but experience difficulty accessing their child’s health care provider.

Under state law, all children must be immunized in order to attend school, preschool, or a child care center unless they have a medical exemption provided by their doctor. Find more details on required vaccines on the state’s Shots for School website.

Placer County’s Public Health division is offering the free immunizations through the (federally funded) Vaccines for Children Program. Vaccinations avoid or greatly reduce the chance of children becoming seriously ill from several diseases, including meningitis, polio, measles, chicken pox, and whooping cough.
