County health officials to offer vaccinations for young Alto ISD students

CHEROKEE COUNTY — Beat the back to school rush!

Cherokee County Public Health officials will be at Alto Elementary School for Pre-K and Kindergarten Round-Up from 5:30 to 7 p.m. March 6 to assist parents in getting their children vaccinated prior to the start of the new school year.

Immunizations are available for eligible children (changes to the TVFC program no longer allow children who are covered under private insurance to receive the vaccine except through their health care provider).  

Vaccine cost is $10 for one or $15 for two or more.

There is no charge for children with Medicaid and CHIPS but will need to bring a current card prior to receiving vaccines.

Please bring all prior immunization records for you child.

School children will need to be vaccinated before the first day of school. If a student is not vaccinated entry into school may be delayed by school administration. Vaccines will be given until stock is depleted.

For more information please call 903-
