Big changes go into effect this fall for school aged children in Logan County and the State of Arkansas. Consequently local health units want to help parents be prepared when back to school season rolls around by taking one more thing off your to-do list.
From April 1 through Sept. 30, the Booneville and Paris Health Units will be offering late immunization clinics — until 6 p.m. — to school aged children to help get a jump on the new immunization requirements starting Sept. 1.
Booneville will offer late clinics on select Tuesdays, and Paris will offer late clinics on select Thursdays. Staff members will be scheduling appointments for these time slots, so parents or guardians are urged to call their local health units for an appointment.
Walk-ins will be accepted when possible, but it is suggested calling ahead and make sure a child or a group of children can be seen on any date. Additionally, parents must bring their child — they cannot come alone, even if they are able to drive.
Late clinics in Booneville are set for: April 1, April 15, April 29, May 13, May 27, June 10, June 24, July 1, July 15, July 29, Aug. 12, Aug. 26, Sept. 9 and Sept. 23.
Late clinics in Paris are set for: April 3, April 17, May 1, May 15, May 29, June 12, June 26, July 3, July 17, July 31, Aug. 14, Aug. 28, Sept. 11 and Sept. 25.
