Where to get an immunization
You can get the meningococcal immunization at most doctor's offices and private clinics and some minor emergency centers or walk-in clinics. Call in advance to see whether they offer the immunization, require an appointment, and take your insurance.
- Texas Vaccines for Children Program(18 years old or younger)
- "Shots for Tots" (18 & under) and "Big Shots" (Adult) clinics
Many Texas city/county health departments offer free or low-cost meningococcal immunization as part of children and adult immunization programs. Call to confirm that they offer the meningococcal immunization for someone your age and in your circumstances. These services are ONLY for those without insurance or whose insurance does not cover the cost of the immunization.
