Vaccine Insurance ConcernsThe Meigs County Health Department uses Vaxcare to supply vaccines for adults and children aged birth through 18 who have commercial insurance coverage. We cannot currently afford to purchase vaccine that is not supplied by the Ohio Department of Health (which is only for children aged birth through 18 years with Medicaid and who meet various other criteria determined by the federal/state government).
Please reference the list of commercial insurance and managed Medicaid companies accepted by Vaxcare. Call 992-6626 to further determine eligibility.
