WASHINGTON COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT
Don’t Wait! Keep your Child’s Immunizations Up-To-Date!
WCHD Offering FREE Vaccination Clinics
Recent data has shown a significant decrease in pediatric vaccination rates in Maryland and across the U.S. During this COVID-19 pandemic many children have not received their recommended vaccinations on time. Vaccinations are important and essential to avoid outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases and keep our children protected.
The Washington County Health Department is offering FREE, Drive-thru vaccination clinics for students entering the 7th grade. We will offer the Meningitis vaccine and Tdap vaccine, both are required for entry into 7th grade. Although distance learning for schools may continue next year, it is vital that children stay up-to-date on their vaccines for their health and schools will require these vaccines upon returning to school. These are challenging times, but you have the power to help keep your child healthy.
What: Meningitis and Tdap Vaccine for students entering 7th grade
When: August 12th from 1pm-4pm
Where: The Washington County Public Service Academy. 701 Frederick Street, Hagerstown MD 21740.
