Back-to-School Immunization Clinic scheduled for July 27

Tuesday, July 11, 2017

The Carroll County Health Unit still has openings available for its special Back-to-School Immunization Clinic from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday, July 27.

Administrator Lisa Holt said the clinic is a great opportunity for students at Berryville, Eureka Springs and Green Forest schools catch up on their immunizations before the new school year begins.

According to the Arkansas Department of Health, vaccines are the safest way to protect you, your children and your community from a long list of serious and potentially life-threatening illnesses. The primary goal of the Immunization Section is to control and prevent the spread of diseases that are vaccine-preventable by providing vaccines to 94 local health units and over 500 non-health department facilities in Arkansas. Immunization doesn’t just protect the person getting the shot; it protects the entire community. By getting shots on time, you can protect your child and yourself from disease and protect others at home, daycare, school or work.

The Carroll County Health Unit is located at 402 Hailey Road in Berryville. To participate in the clinic, call 870-423-2923.
