Worcester Co. Offers Free Immunization Clinics In September

Posted: Updated:

WORCESTER CO., Md. - A local health department is holding free clinics to help parents get kids immunized for school.

The Worcester County Health Department is reminding parents of the new state requirements for immunizations for kindergartners and seventh graders. Students starting kindergarten in the fall need to have proof of two varicella vaccinations, while students entering the seventh grade will need to have proof of one Tdap (Tetanus-diphtheria-attenuated pertussis) and one meningococcal (Menactra or Menomune) vaccination.

Officials are encouraging parents to check with their child's doctor to make sure their shots are up to date for the new school year. Worcester County Health Department is holding three immunization clinics to help Worcester County students who don't have access to a doctor, or insurance that won't cover the shots.

The free clinics will run from 8:00 AM until 5:00 PM on the following dates and locations.

Thursday, September 11 - 400-A Walnut Street, Pocomoke          410-957-2005
Friday, September 12 - 6040 Public Landing Road, Snow Hill        410-632-1100
Monday, September 15 - 9730 Healthway Drive, Berlin                 410-629-0164

Appointments are encouraged, but not required. For more details on the new immunization requirements, visit Worcester County Health Department's website at or call 410-632-1100.
