If your child still needs to get his or her immunizations for school, the Kanawha-Charleston Health Department is offering a walk-in immunization clinic.
The clinic is set for 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. Sept. 12 at the health department, 108 Lee St. E., Charleston, according to a news release from the health department.
The new requirements for students in seventh and 12th grades have changed, and many students have not had the required vaccines.
Students entering seventh grade need to show proof of a Tdap booster and one dose of meningococcal vaccine. Students entering the 12th grade are required to show proof of a single dose of Tdap vaccine and at least one dose of meningococcal vaccine given after the 16th birthday.
Parents must bring a complete copy of their child's immunization record to the clinic.
