The Carroll County Health Department, located at 7725 Hwy 17, in Carrollton will hold a special walk-in immunization clinic for adolescents ages 10-17 for school registration on Tuesday, July 28 AND Thursday, July 30, 2020, from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
During this clinic, the health department staff will have additional nursing staff available to provide adolescent immunizations so that parents can complete the process quickly and efficiently.
Parents should bring a copy of their child’s immunization record, social security card and insurance card, if available. Parents and children over the age of 2 must wear a mask when entering the county health department clinic. Parents and children who are having symptoms consistent with COVID-19 should not come to the clinic.
Mississippi state law requires children to be immunized against childhood diseases to enter public or private school, Head Start or daycare. There are required vaccinations for first-time school entry in Mississippi as well as a requirement for students entering 7th grade.
Parents must provide the school with a Certificate of Immunization Compliance (Form 121) from their immunization provider prior to school entry.
You may check with your physician or county health department if you have questions about which immunizations your child will need.
