Richland Public Health urges back to school vaccines


With the start of the school year less than a month away parents need to begin planning to make sure children are up-to-date on their required immunizations.

Richland Public Health has scheduled additional Back to School Vaccination Clinics starting at the end of July into August. These special clinics are in addition to the regularly scheduled Neighborhood Immunization Clinics throughout Richland County. For dates, locations and times see www.richlandhealth.org or call 419-774-8115 for the 24-hour hotline.

Parents may also schedule immunization appointments at a time convenient for their schedule by calling the Richland Public Health Clinic: 419-774-4700.

The clinic is open until 6 p.m. on Wednesdays. To avoid longer wait times, Richland Public Health nurses urge parents and guardians not to delay getting school immunizations.

For questions about immunizations, please call Richland Public Health Clinic at 419-774-4700.
