DESCRIPTION:
 
Immunizations are provided to prevent many childhood illnesses. We provide immunizations for children 0 through 18 years of age.  Immunization services are provided on Thursdays from 7:30 – 5:30 p.m. and on a walk-in basis, Monday through Thursday.  Public Health also provides an outreach immunization clinic once a month at the Blanca/Fort Garland Community Center from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m.  CCPHA also provides Influenza vaccine during Flu Season. No child is ever turned away for inability to pay.
 

 
INSURANCE INFORMATION:
 
Children can be immunized at CCPHA and may be asked to pay a vaccine administration fee for each vaccine, which can be waived for families who cannot afford to pay the fee as follows:
  • Children who have no insurance
  • Children who are American Indian or Alaska Native
  • Children who are under-insured according to the CDC criteria:
    • Insurance does not cover any vaccines (for all vaccines)
    • Insurance does not cover certain vaccines (for those vaccines)
    • Insurance covers vaccines, but has a fixed dollar cap that has been reached (for all vaccines until the next insurance period.
Children who have Medicaid can be immunized at CCPHA and will not be asked to make any payment.
 
 
 
Costilla County Public Health Agency currently contracts with the following insurances to provide vaccines:
  • Anthem/Blue Cross Blue Shield
  • CHP+
  • Medicaid
  • Medicare (Part B)
  • Colorado Access
  • SLV HMO (aka Colorado Health Choice Plan)
  • Rocky Mountain Health Plan (aka HMO Colorado)
We are not able to provide vaccinations to individuals who have other insurances unless they are willing to pay for the vaccine and administrative fee. We do encourage you to seek the vaccine from your health care provider. Please understand also that if we bill your insurance and they do not pay you may be asked to reimburse CCPHA for the vaccination plus administrative charge. There may be a copay or deductable based on insurance.
 
 
 
CCPHA may have some vaccines available at low cost for uninsured and underinsured adults. Fully insured individuals may still be immunized through certan public health response activities including:
  • Outbreak response
  • Post-exposure prophylaxis
  • Disaster relief efforts
  • Mass vaccination campaigns or public health preparedness exercises
