Local health clinic reminding parents of school vaccinations

A local health department wants to remind parents to make sure their kids of up-to-date on their vaccinations before the first day of school.

The Jackson County Health Department says they are a Vaccine for Children Provider.

That means they offer low cost shots for children who qualify and accept many insurance plans, including Medicaid.

The health department says parents can bring their kids in Mondays through Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. No appointment is necessary. You are asked to bring your child’s shot record and insurance information.

For more information, you can call the Jackson County Health Department at (618) 684-3143 ext. 119.
