Immunization clinics held

El Dorado County Public Health Department will be offering low-cost back-to-school immunization clinics at South Lake Tahoe in August and September.

California law requires that children be up-to-date on their shots to attend school.

“Diseases like pertussis and mumps have been more prevalent over the last few years, so children need to be protected before they enter school,” Cathy Dunbar, the county’s immunization coordinator.

Clinics will be at 1360 Johnson Blvd., Suite 103 on Aug. 16, Aug. 23 and Sept. 5 from 8 to 11 a.m. The clinics are on a walk-in basis; no appointment is necessary. For questions, please call (530) 573-3155.

A parent or legal guardian must be present for all immunization appointments, and parents should bring the child’s yellow immunization card.
