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.

Please watch this short video below to learn more about how immunizations can protect you and your family.
Eastern Idaho Public Health offers immunizations for children and adults. All immunizations are offered by appointment only. Find the public health 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, Insured children will have their insurance company billed for the services received.
Adult & Foreign Travel Vaccinations
We will bill insurance, Medicare and Medicaid for some adult or foreign travel immunizations.
However, some insurances and vaccinatons must be pre-approved.
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 EIPH's Immunization Program at (208) 533-3235.
