Public Health offers back to school vaccination clinic

Getting vaccinated according to the recommended immunization schedule is one of the most important things a parent can do to protect their child’s health, according to a release from Nevada County.

Diseases can quickly spread among groups of children who aren’t vaccinated. Whether it’s a baby starting at a new child care facility, a toddler heading to preschool, a student going back to elementary, middle or high school or even a college freshman, parents should check their child’s vaccination records, the release continued.

Nevada County Public Health will be holding a “Vaccines for Children” Back to School Clinic in Grass Valley.

Grass Valley’s clinic is set for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Aug. 15. The event will be held at the Veteran’s Hall Multipurpose Room, 255 South Auburn St. in Grass Valley

The program is for children 18 and younger who are uninsured, have Medi-Cal or Medi-Cal Managed Care, or are Native American or Alaskan native or for those whose insurance does not cover vaccines. Your child’s shot record and, if applicable, Medi-Cal card will be required for vaccine administration.

Nevada County will also be holding extended regular clinic hours Thursday from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, check or call (530) 265-7265.
