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.
