Free childhood vaccinations offered this week

Contributed
Local health department clinics are working to help parents in their communities by offering required childhood immunizations at no cost in celebration of National Public Health Week, which runs April 5-11.
Types of vaccines being offered by the Washington County Health Department to children and youth under the age of 19 at no charge are Tdap (Tetanus, Diptheria & Pertussis), H1N1, and Varicella (Chicken Pox) vaccines.
Clinics will be held Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, April 6, 7, and 9 from 2:30 to 4 p.m. and on Thursday, April 8 from 2:30 to 6 p.m. No appointment is necessary.
For the first time in a decade, Tennessee has introduced new immunization requirements for children who attend childcare, pre-school and school, as well as a new Official Tennessee Certificate of Immunization required for children starting pre-school, kindergarten and seventh grade this fall.
