ACHD announces Immunization Week

Posted on Wednesday, April 15, 2015 at 1:27 pm

In conjunction with National Infant Immunization Week, April 18-25, the Audrain County Health Department encourages Missourians to take time to contact their health care provider to ensure children and family members are adequately immunized. This observation is held annually to highlight the importance of protecting children two years and younger from vaccine-preventable diseases.
The Audrain County Health Department provides immunizations for children and adults needing specific immunizations.
Clinics are held twice a month on the second and fourth Wednesday from 8-10 a.m. at Audrain County Health Department and on the first Friday of the month at the Lange Building in Vandalia from noon to 2 p.m.
Anyone in need of immunizations must bring a current immunization record. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
There is a $15 fee for most childhood immunizations. Certain insurances can be billed. Adult immunizations such as Tdap, Td, Hepatitis B, and shingles are available.
