EFFECTIVE MARCH 1, 2021: SHD Billing Insurance for COVID Vaccine
As of March 1, all county health departments within South Health District will begin billing insurance for an administration fee for the COVID vaccine.

Those who are insured should bring their insurance card to their visit for verification. Read More
