The Darke County Health Department will be closed for the holidays Thursday, December 25, and Friday, December 26, and also Thursday, January 1, and Friday, January 2.  That means only three immunization clinics left for this year!  Our clinic is open on Tuesdays from 8-10:30 am, and 2-5:00 pm, on a walk-in basis.  As 2014 comes to an end it is a good idea to check your child’s immunization record to be sure it is up to date.  Children can complete the primary series by 18 months of age, and will then need boosters for Kindergarten.  Seventh graders are required to receive a booster shot of Tdap.  Several other vaccines are recommended for this age group.  College-bound individuals may require immunizations prior to attending college classes, or living on campus.  Then, as adults, annual flu shots and a tetanus booster every ten years are recommended.  For adults age 65 and over, there are new recommendations concerning the pneumonia vaccines.  This can all be overwhelming, so if there are any questions, please call the Health Department at 937-548-4196. Our hours are 8 am to 4 pm. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
