Back to School Immunization Clinics Begin July 28
It might seem a little early, but now is the time for parents and guardians of school-age children to think about required and recommended vaccinations for the 2014-15 school year.Parents should begin working vaccinations into their family’s schedule as soon as possible, as the last few days before school starts often see crowded waiting rooms at the health department, clinics and doctor’s offices.
The Springfield-Greene County Health Department’s back-to-school vaccination clinics for Medicaid, uninsured or underinsured children will begin on Monday, July 28 and run through Friday August 22. Walk-in clinics will be held from 8 to 10 a.m. Monday through Friday at the Westside Public Health Center at 660 S. Scenic Ave. No appointments are necessary. Participants need to bring the child’s immunization records. 

See the full news release, as well as additional information on required immunizations, here.
