LAS VEGAS – The Southern Nevada Health District is urging parents to beat the back-to-school rush by bringing their pre-schoolers, kindergartners, and 7th graders for mandatory vaccinations at one of its conveniently located public health centers.
For information, contact the health district’s immunization clinic, (702) 759-0850 or visit www.SNHD.info.
Summer is an excellent time to review immunization records for both parents and children in order to ensure vaccinations are up to date for everyone, including the DTaP vaccine for children and the Tdap booster for adolescents and adults, both protect against pertussis (whooping cough).
The Southern Nevada Health District advises parents and caregivers who bring their children to the health district to update their pertussis vaccinations, including adults who care for or live with infants.Immunizations are available Monday – Friday at all health district locations.
On Saturday, Aug. 23, a special back-to-school immunization clinic is scheduled at the health district’s main facility, 330 S. Valley View from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.
