Parents encouraged to schedule child vaccine appointments now

BOWLING GREEN — School will start before we know it, and now is the best time for parents to get the immunizations their children will need.

Wood County Health Department encourages parents to contact their medical providers to make appointments and avoid the fall rush that comes when students return to school.

Vaccines are among the most successful and cost-effective public health tools available for preventing disease and death. They not only help protect vaccinated individuals but also help protect entire communities by preventing and reducing the spread of infectious diseases.

The health department provides limited immunizations to youth through age 18 whose doctors do not offer them. Immunizations are also available to patients at Wood County Community Health Center.

Wood County Health Department has appointments available for children whose doctors do not offer immunizations. Most insurance and Medicaid is accepted, and the cost without insurance is $20 per vaccine. Call 419-352-8402 ext. 3252 for more information or to make an appointment.

If you or your child does not have a primary care provider, Wood County Community Health Center is accepting new patients. Call 419-354-9049 to schedule an appointment.

The mission of Wood County Health Department is to prevent disease, promote healthy lifestyles and protect the health of everyone in Wood County. Our Community Health Center provides comprehensive medical services for men, women and children. We welcome all patients, including uninsured or underinsured clients, regardless of their ability to pay, and we accept most third-party insurance. For more information, visit WoodCountyHealth.org
