How much do Immunizations costs?
Immunization prices range from $25 for a TB test up to $233 depending on the vaccine.
Will my insurance or Medicaid cover the cost of the immunizations?
If the patient is covered by Medicaid, there is no charge for the immunizations. If the patient does not have any insurance, there is a $21 administration fee per immunization (or what the patient’s family can afford.) If the patient is covered by private insurance, the patient is required to pay full price for the vaccine at the time of service. The patient can then independently submit that fee to their insurance provider.
