County offers school immunizations for uninsured

The Washington County Department of Public Health and Environment offers extra appointments for children who need updated immunizations before the start of the 2012-1013 school year, DPHE officials announced.

The clinics are for school-age children who do not have medical insurance, or those whose medical insurance does not cover the cost of immunizations. There is a $12 administration fee requested for each immunization, but no one who is eligible for these clinics will be turned away if they are unable to pay.

Clinics are by appointment only:

n 2 to 4 p.m. Aug, 27 at the Forest Lake Service Center — WIC Clinic, 19955 Forest Road North in Forest Lake. Call 651-275-7270 to schedule an appointment.
