In 2005, the Springfield Greene County Health Department provided immunizations to 4,713 students under the age of 18. The numbers for 2006 get a big boost this month as the Health Department is holding a series of back to school immunization clinics. Mike Smith has the story:
According to Leslie Davis with the Springfield Greene County Health Department, all students 18 years of age and under attending public, private, and church schools in Missouri must be current on immunizations before they can attend classes. Davis, a Registered Nurse and Immunization Clinic Coordinator with the Health Department, says all this month, the department will provide the shots at the Westside Public Health Center at 660 west Senic.
Special walk-in clinics will be held all month on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 8:00-10:00am and Tuesdays from 7:30-10:00am. Appointments can also be made for Monday afternoons or Tuesday and Thursday evenings by calling (417) 874-1220.
Children must be accompanied by a parent, grandparent or legal guardian and should bring an updated immunization record and Medicaid card if applicable.
