Immunizations
Immunizations (shots) protect our community from deadly diseases. These diseases do still exist today and can spread quickly. It is better to prevent diseases then to treat them. Your local health department offers immunizations (shots) in a safe and caring environment. We are committed to assessing and offering all shots to protect you from disease.

As of July 1, 2010 significant changes to the North Carolina Immunization Program (NCIP) have been made. Free State funded vaccines are no longer provided to insured children. Insured families may be able to take advantage of a limited amount of free vaccine during this transition period. Learn more.

The Immunization Program at Mecklenburg County Health Department can answer questions that you have about immunizations. For immunizations questions, call 704-353-1997. For appointments, call 704-336-6500.
