It's time to get your childrens back to school shots, before the back to school rush. We are a month away from school starting. If you wait until the last minute it will be hard to get your children vaccinated on time. There will be long waits, and the possibility of the clinic being out of some of the vaccines your child needs.
We only do vaccines on Monday and Tuesday afternoons from 1:00 until we have taken all we can complete, in order to close by 6:00.
However, we will have an immunization clinic on August 7th from 7:00 AM until 4:00 PM, and closed from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM for lunch. The Spirit Of St. Michael Bus will be on site to help. Please bring an immunization record. We service children that have no insurance, are underinsured, on medicaid, and are American Indian or Alaskan Native.
