Immunizations offered at county office

The County of San Diego Public Health office in Ramona has immunization clinics the second Wednesday of every month from 1 to 4 p.m. The next clinic will be Wednesday, July 13. The office is at 1521 Main St. in the county complex that also houses the sheriff’s Ramona station.

Tdap booster shots for pertussis, or whooping cough, also will be available in the health office at appointment-only clinics on the fourth Wednesday in June, July and August from 1 to 4 p.m. No walk-ins will be accepted on fourth Wednesdays. For an appointment, call 760-740-4000.

Cost is $10.

A state law requires that all students entering seventh through 12th grades in the 2011-12 school year show proof of having the Tdap booster. The law applies to public and private schools.

Many parents may not realize that their children already have had the booster immunization, say health officials. If parents are uncertain, they are encouraged to bring their children’s immunization cards to the school.
