Childhood immunizations

Childhood immunizations protect kids from serious diseases like COVID-19, measles, mumps, and diphtheria.

Due to COVID-19, many children, teens, and young adults fell behind on immunizations. Now is a good time to get caught up for school, sports, daycare, and more.

Hennepin County has programs that can help your child get immunized, even if you’re uninsured, underinsured, or don’t have a primary care clinic.
