Frequently Asked Questions

1.- Is there a cost to the vaccines?

There is no cost for the vaccines or administrative fee for services.

2.- What if I have Medi-Cal?

For people age 0-18 years with Medi-Cal, Medi-Cal does cover the cost of the vaccines. Please bring your Medi-cal card with you to the appointment.

3.- Can I still walk in and get vaccinated without an appointment?

In addition to Online Appointments, the nurses will continue to offer “first come, first serve” vaccines to walk-in clients at our clinics. When capacity is reached, we will not be able to vaccinate the same day. You will be given the choice of:
  • visiting other centers throughout the County for vaccination
  • returning another day for vaccination
  • making an online appointment for another day
  • For a list of county immunization clinics and their information please visit the website www.sdiz.org or call 211.

    4.- Does a parent or guardian need to be present to vaccinate a person less than 18 years?

    In most circumstances a parent or legal guardian must be present when a child or young adult is being vaccinated. This helps obtain accurate medical history and is required for legal authorization to vaccinate. In circumstances when the parent or legal guardian is not available, please call your nearest immunization clinic or 211 for information.
