August 3, 2018 – School is starting soon, are your children prepared? Among the class schedules, parent nights, and school supply needs, it is easy to overlook a vital part of back to school preparation: Immunizations! Vaccinations are part of the entry requirements for school, so if you think your child might be behind, now is the time to start talking with your children’s doctor about getting them up-to-date.
For children without a medical home, who are uninsured or who have Medi-Cal, Nevada County Public Health will be holding a Back-to-School Clinics in both Grass Valley and in Truckee. Don’t forget to bring printed shot records for your child to the clinic.
Stop by the Grass Valley Veteran’s Hall at 255 S. Auburn St. in Grass Valley on Tuesday, August 14th from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Stop by the Public Health Department in the Joseph Center at 10075 Levon Avenue in Truckee on Thursday, August 30th, from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
In accordance with the Vaccines for Children program, eligible children must be 18 years old or younger, have no health insurance, or be Medi-Cal eligible, or Native American/Alaskan Native. For those children 18 and younger who do not meet these criteria, a limited supply of vaccine will be available for purchase. Prices vary per vaccine. Wait times will vary with capacity.
