    Attention parents of school-age children: Has your child completed his/her necessary back-to-school immunizations?    

    On Aug. 21, the same day as the Crookston School District's "Welcome Back to School" registration day at Crookston High School, Polk County Public Health staff will be available from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4 p.m. at the Polk County Public Health Office, located at 721 S. Minnesota St., to immunize your child.   

    As a reminder and preparation for the immunization law changes taking effect on Sept. 1, 2014, students entering 7th grade will be required to have documentation of Meningococcal and Tdap vaccination or a legal exemption. Polk County Public Health has a limited supply of free Meningococcal and Tdap vaccine.  Available vaccine is on a first come, first serve basis.    

   Additionally, other vaccines are available thru the Minnesota Vaccine for Children (MnVFC) program for eligible children up through the age of 18. Call 281-3385 with any questions.
