FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
DCHD Back- to-School Immunization Mobile Clinics
DeKalb County Health Department (DCHD) is collaborating with our community partners to provide back-to-school immunizations using the Health Department’s Mobile Unit. The DCHD Mobile Unit will be able to provide additional convenient opportunities for parents and guardians to schedule their child’s back-to-school immunizations. COVID-19 vaccines will also be available at the mobile clinic sites.
Low-cost vaccines are available through the Vaccines for Children (VFC)Program. Uninsured children will not be turned away due to the inability to pay for required childhood immunizations. Cash or check, Medicaid, and most PPO plans are accepted.
School immunizations are required for:
- 6th grade
For more information about the required vaccinations, please visit: CDC Resources: Immunization schedules (immunize.org)
