Immunization Clinics: 303-232-6301
Immunizations stop diseases that can cause serious illnesses and even death. It is much safer to get the vaccines than to get the diseases.
For more information about communicable diseases, see the Communicable Disease Prevention and Control Program.
Jefferson County Public Health offers Immunizations at our Arvada and Lakewood locations by appointment only. Please call 303-232-6301 or 303-239-7033 to schedule an appointment. Need More Information?
Fees: There is an administrative fee of $14.75 per vaccine. Service will not be denied due to inability to pay for any childhood vaccine, and fees may be waived. Fees for adults vary depending on the vaccine. If you are in an HMO, you are encouraged to use your HMO's services. If you prefer to come to the health department, you are responsible for the charges and for reporting your shot dates back to your HMO.
