Our registered nurses visit schools around Delaware County to provide children with required immunizations and seasonal flu shots. Most private insurance and all Medicaid plans are accepted. VFC (Vaccines for Children) will be offered. No VFC eligible child will be refused shots due to inability to pay. VFC eligible children include those under 19 years of age who are uninsured, are American Indian or Alaskan Native. Students may also receive immunizations at other Health District clinics where appointments are recommended.
Delaware General Health District offers required immunizations for 7th and 12th grade students throughout the year. Required school vaccines for 2017 include:
Grade 7: 1 dose Tdap (Tetanus, diptheria, pertussis); 1 dose of meningococcal (serogroup A, C, W and Y)
Grade 12: 2 doses total of meningococcal (serogroup A, C, W and Y)
Help your student fight the flu through the Delaware General Health District school-based flu clinic this fall! To participate in the school-based flu clinic, complete the Vaccine Consent Form. One form per child. Only flu shots are available as the nasal spray flu vaccine is not recommended this year. Health District nurses are skilled in giving shots to young children as quickly and painlessly as possible. If, in the nurse’s opinion, your child is unable to sufficiently cooperate to receive the injection safely, you will receive information on other available clinics where you can accompany and soothe your child.
