The Guilford County Division of Public Health – now part of the county’s Department of Health and Human Services – wants to make sure that county school students get immunized before heading back into the classroom for the 2022-2023 school year.
This week, the health division is offering back-to-school immunization clinics with extended hours to help see that happens.
The clinics begin on Tuesday, August 9.
They’ll take place at the county’s Health Division facility at 1100 E. Wendover Ave. in Greensboro and at the Health Division office in High Point at 501 E. Green Dr.
On the days offered, the shots will be available from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
About a week ago, state health officials put out a press release emphasizing that students must get their shots. The state of North Carolina requires that all students be up to date on their immunizations within 30 days of enrollment. Students who don’t meet the requirements may face expulsion until the shots are given.
Appointments for the shots are “strongly encouraged” by county health officials so staff can be prepared for visits. Appointments can be scheduled by calling 336-641-3245.
The clinics held at the Wendover facility will be on Tuesday, Aug. 9 and Thursday, August 18. They’ll also be held there from Monday, Aug. 22 to Thursday, Aug. 25 and from Monday, Aug. 29 through Thursday, Sept. 1.
The clinics in High Point will be held on Thursday, Aug. 11 and Tuesday, Aug.16, as well as Monday, Aug. 22 through Thursday, Aug. 25, and Monday, August 29 through Thursday, September 1
You can call 336-641-4801 for answers to questions about immunization fees. a.m. – 5 (Monday – Friday). Appointments are required.
And numerous guilford county parents(sheep) will comply completely with this nonsense. Guilford County is probably at a nationwide high of getting children Vaxxed. Sheep.
Always some anti vax idiot who thinks his ‘researching while pooping on the can’ is to be better than life long professional scientists who have dedicated their lives to fight illness and disease.
Oh yes, because the “scientists” and “experts” have proven how super accurate they are and how super healthy and effective their advice is. Funny how someone complaining about anti-vaxers takes their medical advice from a bunch of geriatrics with dementia profiting from each jab. Go get your 5th shot! It’s safe and super-effective. LOL
Actually vaccinations aren’t required to attend school in NC. A simple Google search will provide the single paragraph any parent can submit for religious exemption to all vaccinations rather than provide vaccination records to the school. The schools cannot get medical records to check the “validity” of a religious exemption and under state law the school system has no right to challenge the sincerity a religious exemption from school vaccine requirements.
Even easier, go to nvic.org, search for North Carolina and you will find a wealth of information about the laws pertaining to NC and communities within about all vaccinations requirements and how to obtain exemption.
