Health Department Holding Back-to-School Immunization Event, Wednesday, July 28

SNCHD has immunization clinic every Wednesday from 8:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m.. until 4:30 p.m.., on the second Wednesday of the month until 6 p.m. We want to remind parents that children going into kindergarten are required to have certain vaccines, please check with your physician or local health department.  All students entering seventh grade are required to have one dose of Tetanus and Diphtheria toxoids and acellular Pertussis vaccine (TDAP) vaccine, one dose of meningococcal vaccine, and two doses of varicella vaccine. Children with private health insurance need to be vaccinated by their physician unless private insurance does not pay for vaccines then the child can be vaccinated at the health department; through our Vaccines for Children’s Program there is an administration fee per a child, and we accept Medicaid, and CHIPS. We can also vaccinate un-insured adults through the adult safety net, there is an associated cost, and have a limited supply of Zoster vaccine for adults over age 50
