Immunization clinic set

Yamhill County Public Health will host an immunization clinic from 3 to 6:30 p.m. Oct. 29 in the Edwards Elementary School cafeteria. School requirements include two Hepatitis A shots for kindergarten students, a Tdap booster (pertussis) for 7th grade students if no DaTP immunization has been given in the past five years, and two doses of Hepatitis A vaccine by the 2014-2015 school year for students currently in grades five through 10. A parent or guardian must accompany students under the age of 15, who should also bring their most up-to-date immunization record and an insurance card for those covered by insurance. Each immunization is $22, but payment arrangements will be made and no student will be turned away for inability to pay. For more information, call Annie Berger at 503-554-5363.
