Children in Philadelphia can visit any City Health Center to receive immunizations, even without an appointment.
To get vaccinated at a City Health Center, your child must:
- Be under age 19
- Live in Philadelphia
- Bring proof that you live in Philadelphia (like a driver’s license, photo ID, or a letter from a community agency).
- Bring health insurance information if you have it.
Walk-ins are accepted, but appointments are encouraged.
City Health Centers accept Medicare, Medicaid, HMO plans, and most insurance options. If you are uninsured, the centers will charge a small fee based on family size and your income. Health Centers can also help you apply for affordable health insurance.
