Mid’s Immunization Program Assists with Back-to- School Vaccinations

 

August 10, 2018 ~ Community Action Partnership of Mid-Nebraska’s Immunization Program has been busy with back-to-school clinics. In addition to the regular Monday clinics, Mid is providing extra clinics to support the increased number of children and
young adults needing back-to-school vaccinations. On July 30 and August 9, the Immunization Program held an additional clinic in both Lexington and Kearney and are also planning a full clinic day on August 13 instead of their regular half day clinic in Kearney, NE.

Regular immunization clinics are held in Lexington, NE on the first and third Monday of every month and in Kearney, NE on the second and fourth Monday of every month.

Additionally, Mid also provides an immunization clinic in Holdrege, NE on the fourth Thursday of every month.

All childhood Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommended vaccines are available at our regular clinics.
