Monday - Friday, 8:00 - 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 - 4:00 p.m.
Immunization records may be requested during normal business hours.
Foreign travel immunization services are available by appointment only. Walk-ins cannot be accommodated.
Cash, check, and some insurance plans are accepted for immunization fees. We also take VISA, MasterCard and Discover credit cards or debit cards.
Your cost for vaccines depends on your insurance coverage, how many and what types of vaccines you receive at your visit.
Unless you qualify for state-supplied vaccines, there is a charge for each vaccine plus a charge to administer the vaccine.
For a self-pay client, your charge will be the fee for each vaccine plus a $21 administration fee for the first vaccine. The administration fee for each additional vaccine will be $15.
Children in schools and in childcare settings should be immunized to protect themselves and others from diseases such as measles, whooping cough, meningitis and chicken pox.

College and University Requirements
You are never too old to protect yourself against communicable diseases. Immunity for many common childhood illnesses wanes as we get older. New vaccines have been developed to protect older adults from some of the consequences of those childhood illnesses. Contact your health care provider to determine if you are at risk for some of these diseases or conditions.
Please check with us at (828) 694-6015 for availability and current cost and fees for adult vaccines.

Cost is $12 for routine tests required for employment, but there is no charge if the client is symptomatic for TB or has been determined to be a contact with someone with active TB. For a client with a positive skin test, a Communicable Disease Nurse will offer counseling, chest X-rays, medical referrals, contact tracing and testing, and provide medication. Tuberculosis Control Services are provided at no cost to the client.
The tests are administered on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays. The client is required to return to the Immunization Clinic 72 hours after the skin test is placed to be evaluated by a nurse. Tuberculosis skin tests are most accurate at 72 hours after administration.
If you have had a live vaccine (such as an MMR or Chickenpox) within the last 28 days, we are unable to give you a TB skin test. Doing so may result in a false negative.
We can give you a TB skin test and live vaccine on the same day, but a follow-up skin test (such as a 2 step) must be after 28 days from the initial live vaccine dose.
Additional information about tuberculosis is available from the CDC and the state's website. The North Carolina Tuberculosis Control Program's Policy Manual is available on the web for review for health care professionals and the general public.
