Keeping Texans healthy is very important, and the Texas Department of State Health Services encourages the public to stay up to date with immunizations for themselves or their child during this unprecedented time of the COVID-19 pandemic. DSHS offers vaccines for kindergarten, seventh grade and college entry, as well as all infant immunizations. adult immunizations are available to those who qualify.

DSHS is not currently holding community walk-in immunization clinics due to the on-going COVID-19 spread. However, appointments for immunizations are available at the Archer City Field Office located at 511 S Cedar St., Archer City. Appointments will be scheduled so that only one family will be in the office at a time. The office will be disinfected between visits and precautionary steps will be taken to keep everyone as healthy as possible.

The Texas Department of State Health Services provides vaccine for children and adults with no insurance, the American Indian and Native Alaskan population, as well as children on Medicaid. They cannot provide vaccine for those with CHIP, Medicare or private insurance. If their private insurance covers vaccines, they will be referred to their physician. Parent or guardian over the age of 19 must accompany a minor under the age of 18. VFC vaccines are provided for $10 per visit, with a maximum of $20 per household. Adult vaccines are $20 per visit for adults with no insurance. No one will be denied services due to inability to pay.
