Free back-to-school vaccines available across county

Published:

 

Medical clinics across Clark County are offering free back-to-school vaccines to families without regular health care providers.

All vaccines required for school are free for those up to age 19, but some providers may charge an administrative fee. Parents who cannot afford the fee may ask to have it waived, according to a new release from Clark County Public Health.

Children who are not fully immunized may be sent home from school if a disease outbreak occurs, according to health officials.
