Free Immunization Clinic
As a Rural Health Clinic (RHC) we can provided Vaccines for Children (VFC). The Minden Medical Clinic offers this service Monday – Saturday, with or without an appointment. This is a convenience to busy families that do not want to wait for the community immunization clinic also offered through Mid Nebraska Community Services. This is a federally-funded and state-operated vaccine supply program that provides free vaccines to VFC-eligible children. Children must meet one of the following criteria to be eligible for VFC vaccines:
- Enrolled in the Medicaid program or Kids Connection
- Have no health insurance coverage
- American Indian or Alaskan Native
- Underinsured: The child may have some health insurance but the benefit plan does not include immunizations.
The VFC program was created to meet the vaccination needs of children from birth through 18 years. The vaccines available through the VFC program currently include twelve vaccines.

Kids Connection is health care coverage for qualified children developed by the State of Nebraska. It includes both the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and the Nebraska Medical Assistance Program (also known as Medicaid). Its purpose is to provide health care to low-income and low-income uninsured children all across the state.
