The Chester County Health Department is offering walk-in vaccine clinics during the summer of 2018 on Tuesdays from 9 am to 4 pm and on Wednesdays from noon-6 pm (except for August 15). Vaccinations are available on Fridays on an appointment basis only. In addition, back-to-school clinics will be held on Monday, August 6 and Monday, August 20 from noon to 6 pm. Vaccines help protect children and teens from sixteen serious preventable diseases, like whooping cough and measles. Such diseases can be very serious, may require a hospital stay, or can be deadly – especially in young children. Proper vaccination among school-aged children promotes health and prevents disease outbreaks in schools.
Bring vaccine records with you; children under age 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. There is a small fee for children who are uninsured or have Medical Assistance. Families with private insurance pay out of pocket.
Information about the vaccines required to attend school in Pennsylvania may be found at the Pennsylvania Department of Health website at www.health.pa.gov or by calling 1-877-PA HEALTH.
