Northeast Texas Public Health District to host Immunization Clinics

TYLER, April 17, 2013-- The Northeast Texas Public Health District will set up immunization clinics at Tyler ISD middle school campuses on the dates and times listed below.

Immunization requirements for pre-school and sixth grade students change as they move into kindergarten or seventh grade. For high school seniors, state law requires that first time college students receive a vaccination for bacterial meningitis. This vaccination needs to have been administered within the past five years and at least 10 days before the first day of college classes.

Students who are uninsured or have CHIP, Medicaid or private insurance that does not cover immunizations are eligible to attend these clinics. If not covered by CHIP or Medicaid, the cost is $8.00 per vaccine. A parent or guardian must accompany the student at the clinic and should bring a copy of the student’s immunization record.

In addition to the clinics listed below, the Northeast Texas Public Health District is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., and 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., and each Wednesday from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., and 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., for immunizations. No appointment is required.
