For Children Through 18 Years of Age

The Health Department provides FREE immunizations for uninsured or underinsured children. 

The Health Department does not bill insurance companies for vaccinations. If your child has health insurance, call your child’s health care provider to schedule your child’s vaccinations.

***For providers: Please let us know when you run out of Flu vaccine so we can extend our services to those who would have otherwise been served by your office.                            Please call 301-600-3342 or e-mail CD@FrederickCountyMD.gov

Flu Clinics

It's not too early to start thinking about flu vaccinations! Flu vaccination can help reduce the overall impact of respiratory illnesses on the population, which lessens the resulting burden on the healthcare system during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The best place to get a flu vaccination for your children is with their regular health care provider. Make an appointment today! You can also find flu vaccinations available in the community on https://vaccinefinder.org

  • Flu Clinics will be held at the Health Department for uninsured and underinsured children.
  • Note: Starting in fall 2019, the flu vaccine will be prioritized for children with no insurance or access to a primary medical doctor.  We can extend our availability based on need such as lack of vaccine at private medical offices or clinics.
  • The flu vaccine is not available for adults 18 years of age and older at this clinic.
  • Vaccination against influenza (flu) is recommended for children 6 months of age and older.

Get Your Vaccination Record with MyIR

Clients can now access their individual and/or child's ImmuNet records directly through MyIR, which stands for "My Immunization Record". MyIR is a portal that allows you to access your or your child's official vaccination records online. Just like ImmuNet, the portal is confidential, secure, and HIPAA compliant.

To access your or your child's official vaccination record, visit the portal and register today by clicking the button below:

MyIR will need the following information for registration and to match your records in ImmuNet:

  • First and Last Name

For more information about MyIR, go here.

If you have trouble registering and/or are not able to access your records through MyIR, it may be due to one or more of these reasons:

  • MyIR/ImmuNet does not have your vaccination record. Reporting vaccination records to ImmuNet is mandatory in Maryland as of October 2019. Please contact your doctor or school to get vaccination records that are not in MyIR/ImmuNet.
  • Your information (e.g. name, date of birth, phone number and/or address) may be different or is not up to date in ImmuNet (old info, incorrect spelling or if your name has changed). Please complete the Record Request form when prompted to do so in MyIR. You must self-identify by checking the acknowledgement statement (under penalty of perjury) before submitting the form.
    • Parents/Guardians: Each time your child gets vaccinated, ask your child’s provider to update/confirm the parent/guardian information in their system to send to ImmuNet.
  • You have opted out of ImmuNet and chose not to share your or your child’s vaccination record with providers in ImmuNet. Please see the section below if you wish to rescind your opt-out.

If you believe the vaccination records you received from MyIR/ImmuNet is incorrect, please contact your healthcare provider to update the vaccination information.
