For those children without a medical home, who are uninsured or who have Medi-Cal, Nevada County Public Health will be holding a Back to School Immunization Clinic on August 13th from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Grass Valley Veteran's Hall in Grass Valley; and on August 29th from 9:30 am to 11:30 am and 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm at the Joseph Center in Truckee. For over 15 years Public Health has hosted clinics during the summer months to support our children with their immunizations as they enter pre-school, K-12 grades and college.
In accordance with the Vaccines for Children program, eligible children must be 18 years old or younger, have no health insurance OR be Medi-Cal eligible, OR are Native American/Alaskan Native. For those children 18 and younger who do not meet these criteria, a limited supply of vaccine will be available for purchase. Prices vary per vaccine. Please remember to bring your Yellow Shot Record or any documentation to support prior immunizations received. If you have questions for us, please feel free to call Lisa Richardson at 530-265-70479.
California's immunization laws have been updated for the 2019-2020 school year. These new changes took effect on July 1, 2019. Find more information from California Department of Public Health on immunization requirements for K-12th grade and shots required for child care/preschool.
