We all need immunizations (also called vaccines or shots) to help protect us from serious diseases. To help keep our local community safe, St. Francis Family Health Care is proudly participating in National Immunization Awareness Month.
St. Francis Family Health Care will be hosting its annual Back-to-School immunization clinic on Saturday, August 4, from 8 to 11:30 a.m. This clinic is for school children from five years old to college age. The clinic will be conducted at the 2016 South Main location, on the ground floor of the south wing of the hospital.
Shots can prevent infectious diseases like measles, diphtheria, and rubella. But people in the U.S. still die from these and other vaccine-preventable diseases. It’s important to know which shots you need and when to get them.
Please call (660) 562-2525 to schedule a time at the immunization clinic on August 4 to help reduce wait times. Those under 18 years of age will need to be accompanied by a parent. For individuals that have not been to St. Francis Family Health Care previously, immunization records should also be brought to the appointment.
