Nursing Clinic Services

Immunizations

We encourage all Marion residents to first attempt to see your regular health care provider for your immunizations. This is one of the many clinical services that should be available through your medical care home, by someone who knows you and your medical history.

Vaccine preventable diseases, although few in number, have had a resurgence in recent years. Educational outreach to schools, new mothers, and extended care facilities continue to be a priority of the public health nurses.

We offer infant, childhood, and adult immunizations and are available for walk-ins Wednesdays from 2:00pm to 7:00pm.

We accept cash, check, and most credit cards for immunizations.  We also accept most insurance. For pricing information, please contact our office.

No eligible child will be refused shots due to inability to pay.
