Immunization Program

The South Dakota Immunization Program aims to protect all South Dakotans against vaccine preventable disease by increasing immunization coverage levels of children and adults.

The program provides vaccine, materials, training, and support to both public and private immunization providers throughout the state. It increases public awareness of immunizations by providing educational materials to all vaccine providers and working in partnership with local and statewide coalitions. The program also monitors immunization levels of children in South Dakota and is involved with vaccine preventable disease surveillance and outbreak control.

Within the program is the South Dakota Immunization Information System (SDIIS), a computer software system that allows health care providers to share immunization records.

Locating a Childhood Immunization Provider

Check this listing of vaccine providers by county. Or call your local primary care doctor, nurse practitioner, physician assistant, or Community Health Office. Most such providers give childhood immunizations. Or, call the South Dakota Department of Health Immunization Program at 1-800-592-1861 (in SD only) for help finding a provider in your area.

Because the South Dakota Department of Health supplies childhood vaccines for children eligible for the federal Vaccines for Children Program the following conditions apply to eligible children:

  • You cannot be charged for the vaccine. However, you may be asked to pay a small administration fee, which is capped at $20.73 per injection.
  • This administration fee must be waived if you are unable to pay.
  • You may be required to pay an office visit fee to receive the vaccine.
