Health dept. sponsoring shot clinic Wednesday, Saturday at HNHS

The Huntington County Health Department will sponsor a shot clinic Wednesday and Saturday, Sept. 30 and Oct. 3, at HNHS.

The shot clinic is open only to HNHS students, who will receive Tdap and meningitis vaccines; and to HNHS faculty, staff and their spouses, who will receive seasonal flu shots.

HNHS students can receive vaccinations for both Tdap (tetanus booster) and meningitis. There is a fee for each of the vaccinations, which will be waived for students who present Medicaid cards. Students must also bring their shot records.

The Tdap and meningits vaccinations will be mandatory for the 2010-11 school year.

There is also a fee for the seasonal flu vaccines offered to adults.

Hours for the clinic are 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 30, and 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Oct. 3. The clinic will be held in the HNHS commons.
