New vaccinations offered at clinic
WELLSBURG - The Brooke County Health Department will be administering new vaccinations required of incoming seventh graders and high school seniors from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 27 at Brooke High School.
Since last year state health and school officials have required that seventh graders receive a booster dose of the DTaP vaccine, which protects against tetanus, diptheria, and pertussis and a dose of MCV4 meningitis vaccine.
Incoming seniors must show proof of a single dose of Tdap and a booster dose of MCV4 if the first dose was given before the child's 16th birthday.
Parents and guardians should first contact their child's doctor to ensure their children's vaccinations are up to date and the additional doses aren't available through their doctor. Those planning to bring their children should make appointments, to ensure they bring the proper documentation, by calling (304) 737-3665.
The clinics are aimed at youth who are uninsured but the vaccines will be available to those with insurance but not able to obtain them through their doctors, for a fee.
