Immunizations

 

RiverStone Health Immunization Clinic

As many diseases are vaccine preventable, the RiverStone Health Immunization Clinic provides protection from disease through immunizations. Please remember to bring all immunization records with you to each visit.

Childhood Vaccines

Childhood immunizations are crucial to the health of your child, as well as the health of the community. Because they are so critical, Vaccines for Children, a federally-funded program, helps provide vaccinations to children who are not insured or underinsured.  With Vaccines for Children, there is no fee for the office visit, and no appointment is necessary. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends several childhood immunizations.

The state of Montana requires immunizations as a condition of daycare and school entry.

Adult Vaccines

Vaccines available for adults include: Hepatitis A and B, HPV (human papillomavirus), influenza, MMR (measles, mumps, rubella), meningitis, pneumonia, polio, Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis), chickenpox, and shingles.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that healthy adults age 50 and older, get two doses of the new shingles vaccine called Shingrix to prevent shingles and complications from the disease. The two doses, which should be separated by 2 to 6 months, are more than 90 percent effective at preventing shingles.  In May of 2018, the manufacturer of Shingrix began experiencing vaccine shortages and shipment delays due to high demand for the vaccine. Please call the RiverStone Health Immunization Clinic at 406.247.3382 to check on availability.  Find out more about shingles and the vaccine from the CDC.
