Back-to-school season is here. Time for parents to gather school supplies and back packs. Itís also the perfect time to make sure your kids are up-to-date on their vaccines.

All children need immunizations at 4 - 5 years old (Required for Kindergarten Entry) and 11 - 12 years old (Required for 7th Grade Entry.)

Call your health care provider or the Milam County Health Department to check on your child's immunization status, before the back-to-school rush begins!

The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have released new provisional recommendations for the Tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (Tdap) vaccine for pregnant women.  All pregnant women should receive a dose of Tdap vaccine during each pregnancy or immediately postpartum, regardless of the patient's prior history of receiving Tdap.

 


 


 

The Milam County Health Department is open until 6:00 pm on the first Monday of every month.
