for the College-Bound Senior
Are you a senior preparing to go off to college? Now is the time to start making sure your student’s immunization records are up-to-date. Check with your child’s doctor about back-to-school vaccines. Your student’s health history should be considered when deciding what vaccines to receive.
Routine Immunizations include:
• Hepatitis B
• Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR)
• Tetanus, Diptheria, Acellular Pertussis (Tdap)
• Varicella (2 doses)
Other Immunizations to consider:
• Influenza (every year)
• Hepatitis A
• HPV vaccine (human papilloma virus)
Where to go for immunizations:
Ask your family doctor about vaccines. If you do not have a doctor, the Harrison County Home & Public Health department provides routine immunizations through their office by calling for an appointment. Call (712) 644-2220 for more information on any of the vaccines or to schedule an appointment.
The Crawford County Home & Public health department provides routine immunizations through their office by appointment or by a walk-in clinic held the first Monday of each month from 1 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and the 3rd Thursday of the month from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Call (712) 263-3303.
