Immunization

The Bucks County Department of Health (BCDH) provides immunizations for child and adult residents who are uninsured, underinsured, or covered by medical assistance.

Getting the right vaccines helps protect you, your family, and your community from getting sick.

Vaccines are available based on eligibility. Eligible Bucks County residents include children and adults who currently:

  • Have no health insurance
  • Have private health insurance that does not cover vaccines
  • Have medical assistance

Residents with private health insurance, including children enrolled in CHIP (PA Children’s Health Insurance Program), should see their primary care providers for immunizations.

If you qualify, call the BCDH clinic in your area to make an appointment!

Scheduling Your Appointment

  • Appointments are required; please call the clinic in your area weekdays between 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. to determine eligibility and schedule an appointment.
  • New patients will need to provide their current vaccine immunization records before making an appointment.

Preparing for Your Visit

  • A parent, guardian, or responsible adult should accompany children under age 18.
  • Plan to arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment for COVID-19 screening.
  • Please call to reschedule 24 hours in advance if you are unable to keep your appointment to avoid paying a $20 administrative fee.
  • Appointments will be rescheduled for:

    < Late arrivals of 15 minutes or more

    < Those with COVID-19 symptoms or associated risks

For COVID-19 guidance, visit the CDC at COVID-19.

Additional Immunization Services in Bucks County

Residents with health insurance can get most recommended vaccines from their primary care doctors. Many recommended vaccines also are available at local pharmacies, urgent care centers, and travel clinics regardless of insurance status. When using other services, be sure to call ahead to ask about vaccine availability, age requirements, accepted insurance, and forms of payment.

Pennsylvania School Immunization Requirements

Children in Kindergarten through Grade 12 must have at least the first dose of all the required vaccinations or schools can keep them from attending. This requirement, as well as additional immunization regulations, help to ensure that children in the commonwealth are adequately protected against potential outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases.

If your child is not up to date on their vaccinations, you'll have five days from the start of school to:

  • Get the next required dose.
  • Provide a medical plan to get fully up to date.

Don't wait; get your child up-to-date with their vaccinations today!
