Seniors will soon be graduating, many of whom will continue their education at technical or college settings. In the state of Ohio many colleges require that your child have undated booster immunizations prior to the start of their college experience. These boosters include:
* Hepatitis B
* Meningococcal (meningitis)
The cost of each of these vaccines for students 18 years old and younger are $24 each. After 18 the cost significantly rises, ranging from $44 to $117 each. These vaccines can be obtained at the Kenton Hardin Health Department on every Thursday from 8:30 A.M. till 12:00 P.M. then 1:00 P.M. until 4:00 P.M. If your child is on Medicaid, vaccine costs will be covered on that, so bring this card along. Please bring your child’s shot record with you at the time vaccines are given. Any questions, please call the health department at 419-673-6230.
