Important vaccine regarding the meningitis vaccine

The meningitis vaccine is NOT in the tdap vaccine. These are two completely different vaccines. If your child is going into 7th or 12th grade, they need the meningitis vaccine. Look at your child's vaccine records to make sure they have the meningitis vaccine. If not, call their health care provider to set up an appointment. If you do not have health insurance, Please call the Polk County Health Department at 286-3798 to set up an appointment.
