The Livingston County Health Center will host Early Bird School-Aged Shot Clinics later this month and next month.

The clinics will feature incentives from local businesses to encourage students needing required immunizations to get them early instead of waiting until the end of summer. Appointments are required for the clinics scheduled May 30th and 31st from 8:30 to 3:30, June 12th from 1:30 to 6:30, and June 26th from 8:30 to 3:30.

The clinics target students entering eighth grade and 12th grade next school year. The health center notes eighth graders are required to get a Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis) and Meningitis vaccination, and 12th graders are required to get a Meningitis booster.

Students younger than 18 must have a written consent of a parent and those 18 and older can sign a consent for themselves.
