  • Child immunizations

The best way for children to receive their immunizations is with a doctor, as part of a regular health care visit. It is important to take your child to the doctor for regular check-ups. The doctor can check on how your child is growing and make sure there are no hidden health problems.

Medical coverage for your child:

Many children in Washington can receive free or low-cost medical coverage which pays for visits to the doctor as well as immunizations.
