Important Changes at West Central District Health Department

Before you take your children to the West Central District Health Department or doctor's office for vaccinations, check your insurance coverage.  If you have insurance that covers the cost of vaccinations, even if it includes high deductible or co-pay, your insurance company will be billed for your child's vaccinations.

Before scheduling vaccinations, it's important to know your children's immunizations are covered under your policy and wellness benefits.  If you have not met your deductible, you may be required to pay out of pocket for your children's vaccinations.

New guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that take effect October 1, 2012 will limit Nebraska's Vaccines for Children (VFC) program to children 18 and under, who are Medicaid-enrolled, uninsured, American Indian or Alaska Native.
