The Health Department is having a vaccination clinic today from 8:30-11:30.

The vaccinations are for kids 2 years old through 18 years old. Kids who are underinsured or who have no insurance are eligible for State supplied vaccines. The price of the vaccines is $14 for one dose or $20 for two or more. Vaccines are provided for children covered by CHIP or Medicaid.

It is important that your kid has something to eat before being vaccinated and that you bring their complete shot record. Remember, Lubbock Independent School District does require proof of vaccination to enter school (as required by the state of Texas).

Todays' event is once again from 8:30 to 11:30. There will be another tomorrow from 2:00-6:00 and Wednesday from 1:30-4:30. This schedule repeats throughout the month.

The Lubbock Health Department is at 806 18th.
