Where to Find Vaccines

Finding Vaccines in Your Area

Vaccines may be available at private doctor offices, pharmacies, workplaces, community health clinics, health departments or other community locations, such as schools and religious centers. If your primary healthcare provider does not stock all the vaccines recommended for you, ask for a referral.

Federally funded health centers can provide services if you don’t have health insurance or a regular source of health care – you pay what you can afford based on your income. Locate a health center near youexternal icon.

You can also contact your state health department to learn more about where to get vaccines in your community.
