Vaccinate your child


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.
