HENRY COUNTY, Ala. (WTVY) Henry County Health Departments want to make sure your kids are up to date with their immunizations. That’s why they are hosting a Kindergarten Immunization Clinic.
The clinic is taking place at two locations. One is as at the Henry County Health Department in Headland, and the other is at the Henry County location in Abbeville.
Wednesday and Thursday, parents can bring their children to Henry County. The health departments will offer a full spectrum of immunizations, so children can be up to date with their records and start school. To streamline the process both days, the locations are only offering the Kindergarten Clinic instead of multiple clinics. They will spend all the time they need to on a child, but they hope that will be only 15 to 20 minutes.
“This is something we do every year that revolves around the kindergartener and head start registration process,” explained Corey Kirkland, a Health Service administrator for the Alabama Department of Public Health. “Just try to go parents a little extra time that we set aside where they can come and get in. we do our best to make sure all children get what they need and they get it in a timely event.”
The clinic is taking place Wednesday, March 22nd, at the henry County Health Department in Headland, (2 Cable Street, Headland, AL 36345) from 8 to 11 a.m. On Thursday, March 23rd, the clinic is taking place at the Henry County Health Department in Abbeville, (505 Kirkland Street, Abbeville, AL 36310) from 1 – 4 p.m.
Kirkland added to bring your insurance cards and your children's shot records. This way they can cross check and make sure your child receives everything they need.
