Free Immunization Clinic

In order to meet school immunization requirements, the Darke county health department will be hosting a vaccine clinic from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 16th at SPIRIT Medical Transport, located at 5484 State Route 49 South, Greenville.

Student currently in 6th and 11th grade who attend Darke County schools should have received a letter sent to their home through their school during the past couple weeks. The letter invites students to receive the needed vaccines during the upcoming health department clinic and also outlines the requirements, which now includes two vaccines for incoming seventh-graders – a Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria and Pertussis) in addition to a meningococcal vaccine. The second requirement is that now all incoming seniors also are to receive the meningococcal vaccine.

The vaccine clinic is totally free for families.

Those who have medical coverage should bring a copy of their insurance card. Copies of the card will be made on-site and the health department will bill the insurance company. Whatever reimbursement the health department receives from an insurance company to cover the vaccine costs, will be accepted.

For additional information concerning the state vaccine requirements or the upcoming health department clinic, contact the health department at 937-548-4196 x224.
