With the 2013-14 school year approaching quickly, health officials are reminding parents to do required immunizations for their kids sooner than later.
The Southern Nevada Health District provides back-to-school shots at its public health centers. Pre-schoolers, kindergartners, and seventh-graders must get mandatory vaccinations.
The health district will offer extended hours for back-to-school immunizations the last two weeks of August. Immunizations are available:
Parents should bring immunization records. Children with no records might have to begin the immunization sequence from the beginning. Non-custodial adults may accompany a child, however, written consent must be provided to the health district from the parent or guardian at the time of service. An administrative fee of $16 per child for one immunization or $25 per child for two or more immunizations will be collected. Additional vaccines fees might apply.
