We are open for appointments for children’s back-to-school vaccines now through the end of August.

Vaccines available include TDAP and meningitis, as well as boosters for both, Gardasil for ages 9-45 and meningitis B for those 16 and older.

The MOV Health Department takes most private insurance as well as Medicaid, but those without insurance are welcome to make an appointment as well. An administrative fee will be charged, however – $19.85 for one vaccine or $36 for more than one. No one will be turned away if they cannot pay the fee.

A parent’s signature is required for vaccines, as well as the child’s previous shot record. Please bring a copy of your insurance card to the appointment.

To make an appointment in Wood County, call 304-485-7374 ext. 123 or 124.
