Get vaccinated (if you don’t have health insurance)

Getting vaccinated (immunized) is the best way to protect you and your loved ones from dangerous diseases. There are ways to protect yourself whether or not you have health insurance.


If you don’t have health insurance, you can get vaccines (shots) through the Vaccines For Adults At Risk (VFAAR) program at a City Health Center or a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC).


People who:

  • Are age 19 and older
  • Live in Philadelphia
  • Don’t have health insurance


  • Call the City Health Center or FQHC ahead of time to set up an appointment.
  • Proof of Philadelphia residency may be required (mail addressed to you, I.D., etc.). Please ask what, if any, identification or proof of residency is needed before getting vaccinated.
