MCPHD offers a full range of pediatric and adult vaccinations. We do not provide travel vaccines (yellow fever, typhoid, malaria prevention), rabies vaccination, or immune globulin. Macoupin County Public Health Department participates in the Vaccine for Children program. For more information about the Vaccine for Children program, visit the CDC web page at http://www.cdc.gov/features/vfcprogram/. MCPHD will bill Medicaid for immunizations and will bill Medicare for influenza and pneumonia vaccinations. Individuals not covered by Medicaid and not eligible to receive Vaccine for Children vaccine will be charged a fee for vaccination.
