The Springdale Health Department partners with the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) to provide routine childhood vaccines through the Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program.
We offer vaccines for children (birth through 18 years of age) if the child is uninsured, underinsured, or is enrolled in Medicaid.
We offer limited vaccines for uninsured adults (19 years and older).
Immunization clinics are by appointment. Call (513)346-5725 to schedule an appointment. Please bring your vaccine records to your appointment.
COMMUNICABLE DISEASE REPORTING
The Springdale Health Department conducts surveillance for communicable diseases. Communicable diseases are contagious and can spread from person to person. Certain communicable diseases are required be reported to the local health department under Ohio Administrative Codes (3701-3-02, 3107-3-05, 3701-3-12). Examples of reportable communicable diseases include but are not limited to: hepatitis, measles, rabies, salmonella, and whooping cough. The Springdale Health Department collaborates with the Ohio Department of Health, Hamilton County Public Health, the Southwest Ohio Public Health Region, health care providers, laboratories, as well as our community to ensure communicable diseases are appropriately investigated, managed, and controlled. We work to educate the community on how to prevent the spread of communicable diseases through promotion of overall healthy habits and behaviors as well as disease specific prevention measures.
