Don’t Forget Immunizations When Heading Back to School
Press Release

August 8, 2015 - 1:56 PM

Along with school supplies and new clothes, don’t forget to make sure your children are up-to-date on their immunizations as they get ready to head back to school.

The start of the new school year is a popular time to get immunizations, especially for those students heading into kindergarten, 7th grade and college. The Knox County Health Department will offer a special walk-in clinic Aug. 12, from 3 to 6 p.m. This clinic is specifically for back-to-school immunizations. Attendees are requested to bring their shot record so that the new immunizations can be recorded for each child.

If you are unable to make the walk-in clinic, the health department offers all immunizations by appointment, Monday, Tuesday and Friday, 8 a.m.–4 p.m. To make an appointment, call the clinic at 740-399-8009. The following immunizations are required for the 2015-2016 school year:

Kindergarten: The full series of Dtap (diptheria/tetanus/pertussis) and MMR (measles/mumps/rubella), polio, chickenpox, hepatitis B and varicella

 7th Grade: all vaccines required for kindergarten, plus T dap (tetanus/ diptheria/pertussis). In addition, HPV and meningitis are recommended.

College: Check with school official s to see what is required; HPV, hepatitis B and meningitis are recommended.

“The measles outbreak out west earlier this year as well as the last year’s outbreak here in Knox County are good examples of why it’s important to be immunized,” said Karen Lee, RN, immunization nurse for the health department.

“Making sure all family members are up-to-date on their immunizations is the best way you can protect your loved ones and the general population.” For more information about immunizations for children or adults, contact the health department’s community health clinic at 740-399-8009.
