The two public health interventions that have had the greatest impact on the world's health are clean water and vaccines. Vaccines have prevented serious illnesses and death for millions of children and adults every year. But there is still a long way to go. Immunizations, the most cost-effective public health intervention, continue to be under-used.
Eastern Idaho Public Health District offers immunizations for children and adults. All immunizations are offered by appointment only. Find the health district office nearest you to call for an appointment.
Vaccine for Children
Idaho is a Vaccine for Children (VFC) state, which means no child will be denied immunization services based on an inability to pay. At Eastern Idaho Public Health District, Insured children will have their insurance company billed for the services received.
For adult and foregin travel immunizations, payment is due at the time of service. We DO NOT bill insurance for adult or foreign travel immunizations. However, you may submit your receipt to your insurance provider yourself.

Merck Vaccine Patient Assistance Program
Because very limited public funding is available in the United States to provide vaccines to uninsured adults, Merck has created the Merck Vaccine Patient Assistance Program.
This private and confidential program provides vaccines free of charge to eligible adults, primarily the uninsured who, without Merck's assistance, could not afford needed Merck vaccines. To see if you qualify for this patient assistance program, please call EIPHD's Immunization Program at (208) 533-3235.
All services provided and medical records are kept confidential. The client is the only person who has access to these records besides the medical providers at the clinics.
