Immunizations

Florida Department of Health in Marion County

Clinic informationBoy getting vaccine by a nurse

The clinic is open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Walk-in appointments are welcome, but scheduled appointments will take priority. Please call 352-629-0137 to schedule an appointment.

When coming to get immunizations, make sure to bring government-issued photo ID and all immunizations and travel records. A parent, guardian or individual who has power of attorney for medical consent must accompany anyone under age 18. A step-parent, grandparent, adult sibling of the minor, or an aunt or an uncle can bring a minor child in for immunizations if they have written consent from the parent, legal guardian, or individual with power of attorney for medical consent.  

Remember to advise the nurse of pregnancy, allergies or any adverse reactions to medical or immunization procedures.

We offer immunizations that protect against the following vaccine-preventable diseases:

  • Diphtheria
  • Haemophilus Influenza Type B
  • Hepatitis A and B
  • Human Papillomavirus (HPV)
  • Influenza (Flu)
  • Measles
  • Meningitis
  • Mumps
  • Pertussis
  • Pneumonia
  • Polio
  • Rabies (for pre- and post-exposure)
  • Rotavirus
  • Rubella
  • Tetanus
  • Varicella (Chickenpox)

Special processes for July 24-Aug.11, 2017

Immunizations staff will not be scheduling appointments from July 24 to Aug. 11; services will be provided on a walk-in basis only during this time frame. Clients who come to receive immunizations during these dates will experience longer lines and wait times due to the high volume of people being served.
