Vaccinations

Vaccinations give kids the extra protection they need to stay healthy. With Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), parents can rest easier knowing their kids’ vaccinations and booster shots are covered. Use our resources to remind parents and caregivers about this benefit, as well as other preventive and emergency services covered by Medicaid and CHIP. And read our Customization Guide  (PDF, 5.1 MB)  for instructions on how you can customize palmcards and posters for your organization!

Be sure to check out the Outreach Tool Library for a full view of the variety of other outreach materials available.
