Child Immunizations

Canton City Public Health strives to ensure that children are protected from diseases which can cause serious illness, permanent damage or death. Diseases that once spread quickly and killed thousands are now largely controlled by vaccines.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends vaccinating children against most vaccine-preventable diseases by the time they are two years old because these diseases are more common and more deadly among infants and young children.

Vaccination protects not only the child receiving the vaccine but also those in the child's community.

Vaccine for Children Program

  • The VFC program is administered at the national level by CDC
  • VFC helps families by providing free vaccines to children
  • Children through 18 years of age who meet at least one of the following criteria are eligible to receive VFC vaccine:
    • Medicaid eligible: A child who is eligible for the Medicaid program (“Medicaid-eligible” and “Medicaid-enrolled” are equivalent and refer to children with health insurance covered by a state Medicaid program).
    • Uninsured: A child who has no health insurance coverage
    • American Indian or Alaska Native: As defined by the Indian Health Care Improvement Act (25 U.S.C. 1603)

Sliding Fee Discount Program

CCPH offers a Sliding Fee Discount Program for those that qualify based on the Federal Poverty Guidelines (see below).  The Sliding Fee Discount Program is based on verification of income and family size. Please bring the completed Sliding Fee Discount Application (see Clinic Forms above) along with proof of address (photo ID with current address, utility bill, etc.) and proof of income (2 recent pay stubs, most current W-2, SSI stub, unemployment stub, etc.) to the child's appointment.

Adult Immunizations

Diseases that once spread quickly and killed thousands are now largely controlled by vaccines. Vaccination protects not only the person receiving the vaccine, but also those in the community.

Your need for immunizations does not end when you reach adulthood. The following immunization is available at the Canton City Health Department for uninsured or underinsured adults (19 years and older) who are a parent and/or caregiver of infants and children under 5 years of age:

  • Tetanus with the pertussis component (Tdap)

Why do I need a Tdap instead of a regular tetanus booster?
Immunity to pertussis (whooping cough) usually weakens as we grow older. Teenagers and adults infected with pertussis can infect infants and children who have not completed their childhood vaccination series. Young children are at the greatest risk for complications associated with pertussis illness.

How can I protect my child against whooping cough?

  • Get your Tdap shot in the third trimester of every pregnancy (talk to your OB/GYN)
  • Make sure your baby gets all of his/her doses of the DTaP vaccine on time 
  • Encourage anyone who will be in contact with your baby to be up to date with their whooping cough vaccine Tdap, adults that are vaccinated prevent the spread of disease and in turn protect young children 
  • Tdap vaccine is available thru your primary care provider and many local pharmacies

If you have any questions, or to determine if you qualify for a free Tdap vaccination (administration and office visit fee still apply), contact our Nursing division at 330-489-3322.
