HUNTINGTON, WV (WOWK) – The Cabell-Huntington Health Department and the Cabell County Schools plans to host back-to-school immunization clinics for the upcoming school year.

This year’s events will be held drive-thru style. However, officials say although they encourage participants to drive-thru, walk-ups will also be provided.

Scheduled events include:

  • July 15 at Central City Elementary School
  • July 22 at Huntington East Middle School
  • July 29 at Barboursville Middle School
  • August 5 at Milton Elementary School

All events will take place from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. Events will be canceled in the event of rain.

Health and school officials say children must receive several vaccines to enter pre-school or head start. West Virginia residents should also remember seventh graders must have one dose of Tdap and Meningococcal, while 12th graders must have one dose of Tdap and their second dose of Meningococcal if they received their first before their 16th birthday.

Officials ask parents or guardians to bring their child’s shot record and the child’s insurance card if applicable.
