Those students have 90 days to meet the vaccine requirements, Isaac said.
The health department will have walk-in vaccine clinics in Putnam County on the following days: 10 to 2 p.m. Saturday Aug. 17 at the Tri-County YMCA in Scott Depot; 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 14 and 15; and 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 21 and 22 at the DHHR office in Winfield.
"We wanted to be available to serve the kids [in Putnam County]," McCormick said. "To get them immunized because they do have family care clinics in the schools but the schools are not open. So we wanted to be able to offer those services."
The first day of school for Putnam County students is Aug. 23.
The health department has all vaccines recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Meadows said the department is not likely to run out of vaccine doses.
"This is like this every year," Meadows said. "We know that August is back to school so we order additional just to make sure that we will not run out for this month."
Prices vary for vaccines. Parents who cannot afford costs may be offered state-supplied vaccines, McCormick said. In that case, all the parent would be required to pay is a $14.49 administrative fee, she said.
Parents are asked to bring all shot records for their children.
