Get Your Back To School Vaccines Now

(Park Hills) Even though the start of another school year is still a month away, area health officials are encouraging parents to get their children immunized now. Lauren Fitzwater is a nurse and the immunization coordinator at the St. Francois County Health Center in Park Hills. She says there are a number of shots they can administer.

No appointments are needed to get your vaccines at the health department. Fitzwater says it’s better to get your children the vaccines now because the wait will be much longer the closer we get to the start of a new school year.
