School students entering school for the 2017-2018 school year are required to have up-to-date vaccinations in most cases before they will be allowed to attend classes. The Kanawha-Charleston Health Department is offering walk-in vaccination clinics at the health departments.
Kanawha County clinics are scheduled Aug. 7-11 from 8:30 a.m. – 3 p.m. While vaccinations will be provided in Kanawha County on Wednesday, Aug. 9, Stephanie DeWees, director of clinic services, noted Wednesdays are busy clinic days and encouraged those seeking vaccinations to visit the clinic on other days.
Those seeking vaccinations should bring with them to the health department all vaccination records, so the determination can be made about what vaccines are needed. The Kanawha-Charleston Health Department is located at 108 Lee St. in Charleston. The telephone number is 304-348-8080.
