SET Family Medical Clinics provide basic medical services and health programs to uninsured, under-insured, homeless and low income people. They're holding one of 8 free immunization clinics later this week.

SET’s immunization clinic is for children ages 4 – 18 that are uninsured, Medicaid eligible, American Indian or Alaskan Native.

SET will offer free children’s immunizations on August 19th from 4:30pm to 6:30pm at SET Family Medical Clinics located at 825
East Pikes Peak Avenue, Building 29.

The immunizations are by appointment only. Call 719-776-8850 to make an appointment. Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and must have the child’s immunization records.

In 2009 SET became a part of the Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program, which is a federally funded program that provides
vaccines at no cost to children who might not otherwise be vaccinated because of inability to pay.

“SET Family Medical Clinics Immunization Clinic is very important to the Colorado Springs’ community as it works to decrease preventable illness through the use of vaccines”, emphasizes Zelna Joseph, SET Family Medical Clinics, President and CEO.

SET Family Medical Clinics can provide assistance in enrolling children in the Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+) which is a low-cost health insurance program for Colorado’s uninsured children. CHP+ is for children whose parents earn too much to qualify for Medicaid, but cannot afford private health insurance.
