Immunizations & TB Skin Tests
The Butler County Health Department is focused on providing immunizations for infants, children, and adults to help ensure their health and the overall health of our community. During certain times of the year, seasonal flu shots are also available.
Immunizations are administered on a by appointment basis on the designated days and times. Please bring your immunizations record with you. You should keep your shot record just as you would any other important document.
TB Skin Test
TB skin tests are provided on Mondays and Tuesdays by appointment. Patients will need to return two days after receiving a TB skin test to have their results read.
Information on Immunizations
For more information on immunizations, such as expected side effects, when to get immunized, what to bring with you, what to do if you or your child is sick, and more, please call us at (316) 321-3400. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has created a new easy to understand immunization webpage.
For current immunization schedules, visit the CDC website.
To request immunization records administered in Kansas go to https://www.kdhe.ks.gov/326/Statewide-Immunization-Registry to request your record from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.

Vaccinations for Children
The Health Department provides VFC vaccines only for children. This means that we can only provide immunizations to children who qualify to receive these vaccines.
The basic guidelines to qualify are:
- If your child is under the age of 18.
- Has a Medicaid card (Kancare Insurance)
- If you child is uninsured
- If your child is underinsured (call for details 316-321-3400)
- If your child is American Indian or Alaska Native
Children covered by commercial insurance are able to receive Private Vaccines at Butler County Health Department. Children whose health insurance covers the cost of vaccinations are not eligible for VFC vaccines, even when a claim for the cost of the vaccine and its administration would be denied for payment by the insurance carrier because the plans deductible had not been met.
Private Vaccinations now available
