Vaccinations

The York City Bureau of Health is joining with the Pennsylvania Department of Health and Pennsylvania Immunization Coalition in observing Adolescent Immunization Month (AIM) this June. This year’s AIM campaign reminds adolescents and their parents about the importance of immunizations.

During the month of June, the York City Bureau of Health is encouraging parents to schedule a health checkup with their primary care provider and make sure their pre-teens and teens are up-to-date on immunizations. As a convenience to parents of children with either Medical Assistance or no health insurance residing in York City, a special “Immunization Clinic for Teens” has been scheduled at the Bureau’s Albert S. Weyer Health Center, 435 West Philadelphia Street, York. The walk-in Clinic will be held Thursday, June 13, 2013 from 8:30 – 11:00 a.m. and 1:30 – 3:30 p.m.  Vaccination records are required, and a parent or guardian must accompany the child to be vaccinated.

A record of all vaccines administered will be sent to the child’s primary care provider.  All students who present for vaccinations will receive a coupon for an item at Rita’s Italian Ice. Teens covered by private health insurance should contact their primary care provider for their immunization update. Students residing in other municipalities should contact their primary care provider or York County’s State Health Office at 771-4505.
