INDIANA (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - No more free shots for children with insurance says the Indiana Department of Health - to local agencies.
An Allen County Department of Health Administrator says up until now, they've never turned a child away.
Now if your little one has insurance that covers vaccines, you'll probably have to pay your deductible and get the shot with your family physician.
Mindy Waldron with the Allen County Health Department says, “Should they not carry it, or they choose that they like to get it from us still, we can still offer that. We are looking into purchasing vaccines on our own and having that available so we can still be a source in the community for that and we do plan to sell a vaccine at our cost.
Opponents fear fewer children will receive life-saving vaccinations.
The policy goes into effect July first.
