Monona County Public Health Immunization Clinics are now by appointment only!

If you are a patient of Family Medicine Clinic in Onawa or Burgess Family Clinic in Mapleton, your child gets to go to the doctor for immunizations now since these clinics are also VFC (Vaccines for Children) providers like we are.  This means that if your child is on Medicaid, has no insurance, or has insurance that does not pay for vaccines you can make an appointment at these doctor's offices for immunizations, well-child exams, lead tests, etc. and get everything done at the same visit.

If you are not a patient of Family Medicine Clinic or Burgess Family Clinic, you are welcome at our immunization/lead screening clinics.  Please call 712-433-1773 to set up an appointment.

(1)  Immunizations can save your child's life.
(2)  Vaccination is very safe and effective.
(3)  Immunization protects others you care about.
(4)  Immunizations can save your family time and
(5)  Immunization protects future generations.
