Clermont County Public Health offers back-to-school immunization clinics

BATAVIA, Ohio (June 22, 2016) — Though summer vacation is in full swing, Clermont County Public Health is preparing for the upcoming school year by offering back-to-school immunization clinics. All immunization clinics will take place in the nursing division of Clermont County Public Health, located at 2400 Clermont Center Drive, Suite 200, in Batavia. Appointments are necessary and can be made by calling 513-735-8400.

The clinics will be held on:

• Thursday July 14, 1 – 3 p.m.
• Wednesday July 20, 3 – 6:15 p.m.
• Thursday August 4, 1 – 3 p.m.
• Thursday August 11, 1 – 3 p.m.
• Wednesday August 17, 3 – 6:15 p.m.
• Thursday September 8, 1 – 3 p.m.
• Wednesday September 21, 3 – 6:15 p.m.

All required school immunizations will be available at the clinics.

New for the 2016-2017 school year is the requirement that all students entering seventh grade must have one dose of the MCV4 (meningococcal) vaccine to start school, and another at 16 years of age. All children entering the 12th grade must have a booster of the vaccine.

“We want to help parents keep their children up to date with their immunizations. The beginning of the school year can be busy for parents, so we encourage them to get their child’s immunizations updated early,” said Jackie Lindner, director of nursing for Clermont County Public Health.

Parents and caregivers must bring their child’s immunization records and insurance card to the clinic. Most insurances and Medicaid will be accepted. Cash, check, and credit cards will be accepted.

In addition to the clinics listed above, a walk-in (no appointment necessary) clinic will be held on Thursday September 1, from 2 – 6:30 p.m.
