DPHSS Will Hold Back to School Immunization Clinic Next Month

It may still be summer time, but the local public health wants to make sure that children are up to date on their shots before sending them back to school with a Back to School Immunization Clinic. 

The Department of Public Health and Social Services announced that they will be having the clinic on Wednesday, August 12 from 10 am to 12 noon at the Micronesia Mall center court.

The clinic is for children 4 years to 18 years of age and limited to those with Medicaid, MIP or no insurance.

According to a release from DPHSS, all necessary immunizations will be given. Parents must bring their child’s most current shot record and Birth Certificate. The release also states that all children below 18 years old must be  accompanied by a parent or an adult with written authorization and photo ID.

Because the Back to School Immunization Clinic will be held at the mall on that day, the regular Walk-in Immunization Clinic at the main public health in Mangilao will be closed. For more information, please call the DPHSS Immunization Program at 735-7143.
