CLEARFIELD — Davis County Health Department’s immunization staff and the Davis School District will conduct vaccination clinics for kindergartners and 7th graders during registration and orientation.
The outreach clinics are scheduled in each school through August, allowing students to meet the required vaccinations for entry into kindergarten or 7th grade.
Students receive the required Tdap (tetanus, diptheria and acellular pertussis vaccine and the recommended meningococcal vaccines during the clinics.
“Vaccinating a school child not only protects the child but the school community from person-to-person disease transmission,” said Lewis Garrett, director of the Davis County Health Department. “High immunization coverage in the schools means a high level of immunity throughout the schools.”
Additional outreach clinics are listed at daviscountyutah.gov/health/calendar. For information about which insurance policies are accepted, call the health department at 801-525-5020 or the school.
