Holmes County Health Department offers children's immunization clinics at various sites throughout Holmes County on a monthly basis. Immunizations are offered to anyone 0-18 years of age at no cost. Medicaid cards and donations are accepted.
A parent or guardian must accompany children -- another adult may take the child with written permission from the parent. Take a copy of the child's immunization record. Below are the scheduled clinics:
-- Holmes County Health Department, 931 Wooster Road, Millersburg, Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-1 p.m. and 2-4:30 p.m. (Health Clinic only, closed first and third Wednesday afternoons of each month. All others are open.)
-- Walnut Creek Mennonite Church, 2619 Township Road 144, Walnut Creek, Tuesday, 27, 8:30-11:30 a.m.
-- St. John's Lutheran Church, 8084 State Route 241, Mount Hope, Wednesday, Nov. 21, 8:30-11:30 a.m.
Please bring your immunization record. If a child has had immunizations, no shots will be given without the parents' record.
Immunizations help prevent diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough, polio, HIB, measles, mumps, rubella, chicken pox and hepatitis B. Children should begin their immunizations at 2 months of age and should be fully immunized before they are 2 years of age.
