Immunizations: Children and Adults
Immunizations are provided as a service to Peoria County residents to assure access to immunizations for vaccine preventable diseases. Fees apply for some services however vaccines required for daycare or school entry are not denied due to inability to pay.
Infants normally begin their immunizations with a dose of Hepatitis B vaccine at birth, followed by immunizations at 2, 4, 6 and 12-18 months of age. Vaccines are needed following a child's 4th birthday for school entry. Additional vaccinations are recommended at 11-12 years of age. A booster of a Tetanus/Diphtheria containing vaccine is required for entry into high school but may be covered by immunizations that were given at 11-12 years of age. Please contact colleges for information on immunization requirements as these may vary due to field of study.
