Vaccines for Children

DHHS through its Immunization Program buys all the recommended vaccines for every child in New Hampshire, regardless of insurance or income.

Attention Parents and Guardians — Did You Know...

In New Hampshire, all children through the age of 18 years are able to receive all recommended vaccines at no cost for the vaccine. No child in New Hampshire can be denied state-supplied vaccine because of their inability to pay an administration fee.


  • How can NH do this?
    • By combining New Hampshire (NH) general funds, federal funds and contributions from health insurance companies that do business in NH, DHHS is able to purchase enough vaccine to provide every NH child with all recommended vaccinations. Health plans have been assisting with funding for many years.
  • How do I take advantage of this?
    • Simply go to your regular health care provider. Your health care provider orders their vaccines from DHHS and will not charge you for those vaccines.

      No health care provider can turn you away because you can't pay for the provider to give the immunization (known as the "administration fee"). However, the health care provider may charge an office visit fee. If you are having trouble affording the office fee for immunization visits, speak with your health care provider about options that may be available to you.
