County to offer immunization clinic for area students July 31

May 29, 2013 

The Jackson County Health Department will hold an immunization clinic for Lee’s Summit area students from 1 to 6 p.m. July 31 at Pleasant Lee Middle School, 630 S.W. Persels Road.

Students must bring a copy of their insurance/Medicaid card (if applicable), a copy of their immunizations and be accompanied by a parent or an adult. If the parent cannot be present, the parent needs to send a signed note giving permission for the child to receive the immunization.

The Jackson County Health Department also provides immunization clinics at locations in Lee’s Summit and Greenwood. The Lee’s Summit clinic is offered from 1 to 3:30 p.m. the third and fourth Mondays at Lee’s Summit United Methodist Church, 114 SE Douglas. The Greenwood clinic is offered from 1 to 3:30 p.m. on the second Tuesdays at Greenwood City Hall, 709 W. Main St.

Children who are covered by Medicaid will not pay for the immunizations. A $10 administration fee is charged for children who do not have insurance or who are covered by a plan that does not pay for immunizations.

Children with insurance that pays for the immunizations will pay for the immunizations at the clinic and receive a receipt for reimbursement to send to the insurance company. There is no charge for any student 11 years or older for the TDaP vaccine only, except for the $10 administration fee for children not on Medicaid.

For more information about the clinic, contact Jackson County Health Department at 816-404-6415.
