Post Date:07/24/2018 2:30 AM

The Guilford County Department of Health and Human Services (GCDHHS), Division of Public Health has scheduled special Back-to-School vaccination clinics for rising 7th graders, Saturday August 4th and August 18th, 2018 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at 1100 E. Wendover Avenue in Greensboro and 501 E. Green Drive in High Point. An appointment is required and can be made by calling 336-641-3245.  This number will accommodate both English and Spanish speakers.  Appointments are also available 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday (except holidays) in the Division of Public Health’s general immunization clinics.  Please bring your child’s insurance card (including Medicaid) and your child’s vaccine record to the appointment.  Fees may apply; please call 336-641-3245 for fee and insurance questions prior to your child’s appointment.

 “We hope parents will take advantage of this special opportunity to get an early start with vaccinating their 7th graders. This is one less thing to think about and one less thing to do along with all of the other back-to-school preparations”, states Vonda Pabon, RN, Nurse Manager with the Division of Public Health. 

 Parents are required to provide proof of up-to-date vaccinations on the first day of school entry.  A physical exam is also now required for any student new to the North Carolina public schools regardless of the grade level.  The required Health Assessment Form must be completed by your child’s health care provider.

 For more information about vaccinations or for an appointment, contact the GCDHHS, Division of Public Health at 336-641-3245; visit www.guilfordcoutync.gov;  or contact your child’s health care provider.
