Cost

The cost of each immunization is different and depends on the amount the health department pays the manufacturer of the vaccine.

Salt Lake County Health Department immunization clinics accept many insurance carriers, but check with your specific plan to confirm coverage.

Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program
The health department also administers immunizations through the federal Vaccines for Children (VFC) program. VFC immunizations are $10.00 to 14.50 each, depending on family income. To be eligible, children must be 18 years old or under and either:

  • uninsured;
  • on Medicaid/CHIP; or,
  • an American Indian/Alaskan Native
Immunization Records

To request your own immunization record, you must be 18 years or older. If you are requesting the record of a minor under 18, you must be the child's parent or legal guardian at the time of the request.

Immunization records are protected, confidential records so you must prove your identity before you may receive the record.

You can request an immunization record three ways:

  1. From your healthcare provider
    Most healthcare providers in Utah are connected to the Utah Statewide Immunization Information System (USIIS). Contact your provider and ask if they can give you an Official USIIS Personal Utah Immunization Record. If your provider does not participate in USIIS, they can print your immunization record from their own medical record system.

  2. From the Salt Lake County Health Department
    Complete a medical record release form (formulario de solicitud médica), print the completed form, sign it, and bring it along with photo identification to one of our immunization clinic locations. Note that we CANNOT release immunization records over the phone or over email because we are required by law to verify your identity.

  3. From the Utah Department of Health's Utah Statewide Immunization Information System (USIIS)
    Submit a completed, notarized USIIS Immunization Record Request form to:
    USIIS
    PO Box 142012
    Salt Lake City, UT 84114-2012

    Email: immunize@utah.gov

Workplace Policies

Schools
To help protect the health of our children, particularly in case of an outbreak situation, Salt Lake County health regulation requires all school employees (in both public and private schools) to be fully immunized according to the CDC’s recommended immunization schedule. This regulation is a tool for local school districts to use in adopting and implementing employment policies that protect the children and families they serve.

For more information about school employee immunization requirements, see Salt Lake County Health Regulation #38

Other Employers
In recent years, additional employers have also recognized the financial (and employee wellness) benefit of adopting workplace immunization policies to help protect their workforce—and the public—from vaccine-preventable diseases.

Health care agencies, corporate wellness groups, universities, and others have implemented policies that require employees to be current on all or some vaccines as a condition of employment.
