Immunizations at the Refugee Health Clinic

Initial immunizations are conducted at Refugee Health Clinic (RHC) appointments. WR provides assistance with transportation to the first two appointments. In some cases, RHC cannot provide certain vaccinations due to a shortage or preventing overdosing (i.e. booster shots). In such cases, and for any subsequent vaccinations in the future, immunizations must be administered at other clinics. After a family's first RHC appointment, children will have received all the necessary immunizations and will then be able to enroll in school.
This free, mobile vaccination bus visits different locations throughout the week. It runs on a first-come, first-serve basis therefore the family must be at the location early.
If children in the SCUSD need vaccinations in order to enroll in school, the district provides a free immunization clinic right before school starts and every Thursday from September through May.
If children in the SJUSD need vaccinations in order to enroll in school, the district provides an immunization clinic during the school year. A family needs to pay $10 per student, per visit.
Please refer to Sacramento Area Community Immunization Clinics guide for a list of vaccination sites.
The Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHS) provides low cost vaccinations through Immunization Assistance Program (IAP) to eligible people.
Attached is a Refugee Health Clinic Guide for our volunteers who assist families with the RHC Appointment.
