Put back-to-school immunizations on your to-do list!

Although the start of school may not be on your radar, getting on a vaccination schedule should be. Some vaccines require more than one dose, so it’s important to plan ahead. Below is a list of necessary vaccinations required to attend school or participate in pre-school or a licensed childcare establishment.

There are 14 serious or life-threatening preventable diseases that can affect newborns to children age 6. Immunizations are not only important for the long term health of your children, they also protect the health of the elderly, friends and classmates who may have compromised immune systems and can’t be vaccinated.

Other shots that are not required for school, but which are as important are HPV and Meningitis.

  • Three Forks: July 25, August 2 and August 10, by appointment, at the Three Rivers Medical Clinic. Call 406.582.3100 to set an appointment.
