Are your students school immunizations up-to-date?  The Utah County Health Department (UCHD) will be coming to schools in Nebo School District to provide immunizations for kindergarten and seventh grade. And it isn't too late for flu shots, which will also be provided.  Immunizations will be given to individuals ages four and up, and include influenza, DTap/Tdap, HepA, HepB, polio, varicella, meningoccocal, MMR, and HPV.
Insurance plans can be billed (including Altius, Bluecross BlueShield, CHIP, DMBA, Educators Mutual, Humana, Medicaid/Medicare, PEHP, SelectHealth, and United Healthcare). If you don't have insurance or it doesn't cover childhood vaccinations, UCHD can provide flu shots for $10 and Tdap immunizations for $14.  Appointments are not necessary and individuals will be seen on a first-come/first-served basis.
The UCHD will be at the following schools at the times indicated:
Taylor Elementary, February 7 from 3:00 to 5:30 p.m.
Park Elementary, February 9 from 3:00 to 5:30 p.m.
Westside Elementary, February 23 from 3:00 to 5:30 p.m.
The UCHD also offers immunizations at our Provo Clinic and at satellite clinics in American Fork and Payson (regular immunization prices apply).  For details, please see or call 801-851-7025.
