The Johnson County Department of Health and Environment is offering six opportunities this summer for incoming 7th and 11th grade students to get caught up on required school vaccinations.

Walk-in vaccination clinics will be available in June, July and August for older students to receive the Tdap, hepatitis A and meningitis vaccinations which are required by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment to attend school and participate in school activities. The HPV vaccine is also recommended and will be available at each clinic. No appointment is needed.

“Parents can save time by bringing their student to one of these clinics and avoid the longer wait times that often happen as it gets closer to the new school year,” says Charlie Hunt, department director. “We make it quick and easy for students to catch up on vaccinations, so they avoid missing school days and extracurricular activities.”

Parents/Guardians must accompany their student to the clinic and are encouraged to complete paperwork online by the Wednesday before the clinic. Additional items to bring to the clinic include the student’s health insurance information and vaccination record if available.
