The Liberty County Health Department will be holding back-to-school clinics in late July and early August for students in need of immunizations and vision, hearing, dental and nutrition screenings.
The clinics will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. July 20 and 27, and from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 1 at the Liberty County Health Department at 1113 E. Olglethorpe Highway, Hinesville
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.
