High school juniors and seniors should check to see if they have had their Hepatitis B (series of 3 shots) and Meningitis (1 vaccine) to meet college entry requirements. Their number is 419-673-6230. These are available at the Kenton-Hardin Health Department. Their number is 419-673-6230.
Girls, ages 11-18, are urged to get their HPV Gardasil (series of 3) immunizations, which are now open to everyone.
Immunizations are now $10 for students 18 and under at the local health department. Once the students turn 19, the price of these vaccines dramatically increase! No one is denied vaccines due to inability to pay.
