Each year, thousands of children get sick from diseases that could have been prevented by basic childhood immunizations. That’s why school officials insist children are properly vaccinated. Without these required shots, outbreaks could easily affect entire school campuses.
The Fulton County Division of Nursing is holding “Vaccination Rush Weeks” to administer required school entry vaccinations. A back to school vaccination “kick-off” will take place, Saturday, July 30th, from 9 am until 3 pm at the North Fulton Service Center, located at 7741 Roswell Road in Sandy Springs, Georgia 30328.
Back-to-School Rush Weeks will be held August 1 – 5 and August 8 – 12 from 8:30am – 4:00 pm at the following vaccination zones:
- North Fulton Health Center – 3155 Royal Drive, Atlanta 30022
- Center for Health and Rehabilitation – 365 Boulevard, Atlanta 30312
- Adamsville Health Center – 3699 Bakers Ferry, SW, Atlanta 30331
- College Park Health Center – 1920 John E. Wesley Ave., College Park 30337
Take advantage of the Rush Weeks and be ready for school. For more information, call (404) 730-1211 for health center locations. Log-on to www.fultoncountygahealth.org for more information on required immunizations.
