The Cabell-Huntington Health Department is partnering with Cabell County Schools to host several back to school immunization clinics to prepare children and adolescents for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year. This year the events will occur on various days and locations, drive-thru style. Though drive-thru is encouraged, walk-ups will also be provided. If there is rain on the day of the event, the event will be canceled. The dates and locations are as follows:

*All events will take place from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM
Children and adolescents are encouraged to attend the event and receive immunizations to protect them. Several vaccines are required to enter pre-school or head start. Also, remember the school entry immunization requirements for 7th and 12th graders. Seventh graders must have Tdap (1 dose) and Meningococcal (1st dose), while 12th graders must have Tdap (1 dose) and Meningococcal (2nd dose if first was received before 16th birthday). It is highly recommended for parents to bring their child’s shot record.
