The Liberty County Health Department is holding three clinics to help parents beat the back-to-school rush.
Each clinic is focused on providing screenings and immunizations that students need before starting school in Georgia.
The clinics at the Liberty County Health Department are from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., Thursday, July 20; 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday, July 27 and 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 1.
Students entering a Georgia school for the first time – no matter what the grade level – must have a completed Certificate of Vision, Hearing, Dental, and Nutrition screening form. “First time” means never enrolled in a Georgia school before at any time in their lives.
In addition, children born on or after Jan. 1, 2002 who are attending seventh grade and new entrants into Georgia schools in grades 8 through 12 must have received one dose of Tdap vaccine and one dose of meningococcal vaccine.
“New entrant” means any child entering any school in Georgia for the first time or entering after having been absent from a Georgia school for more than 12 months or one school year.
Students will be seen on a first come, first served basis and no appointment is necessary.
