Parents are offered the opportunity to vaccinate their children for school at the Baldwin County Health Department. The health department has set aside special dates for the Immunization Clinic: August 2 - 3, 6 - 8, 13 - 14.
Walk in availability will be open from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. The clinic is located at 23280 Gilbert Drive in Robertsdale. Parents are asked to bring any documentation of the child’s vaccination history as well as insurance information, Medicaid or BCBS. There will be a maximum charge of $ 15.
Requirements for school attendance are listed below.
- Children entering school in the fall are required by Alabama Law to present a Certificate of Immunization formerly known as a "Blue Card".
If a child has received all required vaccines and only needs a Certificate of Immunization, these can be printed and issued from that child’s school.
- Children entering Kindergarten need boosters of DTaP, Polio, MMR and Varicella. These shots complete the childhood series for Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertussis, Polio, Measles, Mumps and Rubella.
- Children age 11 and entering the 6th grade need a Tdap vaccination.
If you are unsure whether your child needs shots, check with your pediatric provider or the Baldwin County Health Department at 251-947-1910.
