Don't Procrastinate; Get School Shots Now

June 13, 2017

 

Although summer is just beginning, the Grundy County Health Department would like to remind parents to schedule immunization appointments for their school-age children soon. School immunization requirements affect three age groups primarily:

 

  • Students entering Kindergarten must have a booster series.

  • Students entering eighth grade need a TDaP (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis) booster and a meningococcal vaccination.

  • Students entering 12th grade are required to have a meningococcal vaccination.

 

To avoid a last minute rush, the Grundy County Health Department is offering an incentive for students that come in early: a $10 gift card for appointments before July 1 and a $5 gift card for appointments before
August 1. Evening appointments are available.

 

Avoid the August rush by scheduling your appointment this month. Call the Grundy County Health Department at 359-4196 to make an immunization appointment for your child.
