Middle school immunization clinics

dohStudents entering the 7th grade are required to have a current Tetanus-Diphtheria-Pertussis (Tdap) shot. The local department of health has scheduled outreach clinics to provide additional opportunities for parents to update their child’s middle school shots.

“The Midway location was heavily damaged by the spring flood,” said Barbara McMillion, RN, director of nursing for DOH-Santa Rosa. “Repairs are ongoing, but the building will not be open before the start of the new school year. We are offering the school based clinics in Gulf Breeze and Navarre as a more convenient way for folks at the south end to get those shots. Our satellite clinic in Jay is only open one morning a month, so the outreach clinic at Jay High School will offer those residents some additional opportunities, as well.”

Shots will be provided on a walk-in basis. No appointment is required. The outreach clinics will provide only the Tdap for 7th grade. No additional vaccines or services will be available. Children must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Parents are asked to bring a copy of the child’s immunization record.
