Please bring your child’s personal immunization record with you or immunizations may not be able to be given.

Tuberculin Skin Testing

Otherwise known as TST, TB or PPD, this test is offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Arrangements will be made for a return visit to have the test read within 48-72 hours after administration.

Insurance

The Wellness Clinic will submit vaccine charges to your insurance. It is the responsibility of the cardholder to know what their eligibility and coverage is with their insurance carrier. If this is not known, please contact the insurance company to verify coverage limitations. The MMH Wellness Clinic's rendering physician is Thomas A. DeCilles, MD. Immunizations are billed as "preventative" and may be covered under the wellness category of your insurance plan. The insurance company makes the final determination of your eligibility and coverage.

Free Vaccine

Free vaccine is available to children 18 years and younger who meet eligibility requirements for the Vaccine For Children Program (VFC). Some of the requirements include:

  • Having any form of Medicaid, MD-Wise, Hoosier Healthwise, Anthem Medicaid or MHS (Managed Health Services)
  • Having no health insurance
  • Having insurance that does NOT cover vaccines (This does NOT include insurance plans that require you to meet your deductible first.)
