Back-to-School Immunizations

By  | 

The Leon County Health Department had a back-to-school immunization clinic at Governor's Square.

Children in kindergarten and seventh grade were there getting shots needed before heading back to the classroom.

Registered nurses said they are trying to give parents and their children a head start on the school year.

Ann Waltz of the Leon County Health Department said, "We hate it when folks wait until the last minute for their children to get immunized. Lines tend to get longer, then you can get them now. Turn in the paperwork at school and have them have a smooth first day of school."

Parents were also able to register for gift certificates to Governor’s Square donated by the North side Kiwanis Club and VISTA Health Plan.
