Teen Immunization Clinics
With school starting back up in less than a month, the city of St. Joseph Health Department and area Mosaic Life Care clinics are working together to help get 8th and 12th graders prepared for the first day. On August 9, all clinics are accepting walk-in clients for back-to-school vaccinations for teens.
8th Grade Vaccinations:
- Required: Tdap and Meningococcal ACWY
- Recommended: Gardasil 9
12th Grade Vaccinations:
- Required: Meningococcal ACWY
- Recommended: Meningococcal B and Gardasil 9
The health department clinic is open Monday through Friday during the hours of 8-11am and 1-4 pm.
Please bring the following if available: insurance card (there is no charge for immunizations to those without insurance at the city of St. Joseph Health Department), current immunization record(s), child(ren) needing immunizations, and preferably another responsible person to stay in the waiting area with family members other than the patient while immunizations are administered.
Mosaic clinics will accept walk-ins for established patients.
Contact your child's health care provider at the appropriate clinic at Mosaic Life Care to determine hours of operation for immunizations.
While August 9 will focus on teens, there is no need to wait until that day to get the required immunizations as clinics are currently accepting patients for vaccine administration. Likewise, the clinics will offer vaccines to youth after the teen day. Also remember, kindergarten students need boosters as well and can be seen daily between now and the beginning of school.
