Immunizations play an important role in the overall health and wellness of Sanilac County residents. The Immunization Program is a service that prevents and protects children and adults from a variety of diseases such as Influenza, Meningitis, Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Tetanus, Chickenpox, and Polio.


  • We accept Private Insurance, Medicaid, Medicaid Health Plans, Medicare, Underinsured or Uninsured Clients.
  • SCHD participates in the Michigan Adult Vaccine Program (MI-AVP) for individuals aged 19 and older who have no insurance or who have insurance that does not cover any cost of the vaccine.
  • SCHD also participates in the Vaccine for Children (VFC) Program which provides vaccines for free or at low cost. These children must be 18 years and younger and meet one of the following criteria:
    • Be enrolled in Medicaid
    • Have no medical insurance
    • Be an American Indian or Alaskan Native
    • Under-Insured*
  * Under-Insured: For the purposes of determining eligibility for VFC, children are considered to be under-insured if the child's insurance does not cover reimbursement for the cost of vaccinations. A child with health insurance that has no immunization coverage at the time of the appointment is considered to be under-insured and eligible to receive VFC vaccine.
