Jefferson Healthcare created a drive-up immunization station to give parents and caregivers an easy solution for children to receive needed “back to school” immunizations.
A quick call to a child’s primary care provider or a visit to the Washington State Immunization Records: MyIR, (https://wa.myir.net/) can help determine which vaccines are needed. Immunization can always be done during an office visit, but the drive-up option helps to minimize unnecessary trips into an office, alleviate the stress of juggling more than one child at a traditional visit and just plain makes it easy to keep up to date with needed immunizations.
The drive-up immunization station, offered at the Sheridan Clinic at 915 Sheridan, is by appointment, 360.379.8031. Some adult vaccinations like measles, Hepatitis B, and pneumococcal will be available. Please be aware adult vaccine cost coverage varies by individual insurance plan.
Protecting all members of our community through vaccination is an important initiative. By vaccinating children on time, we build a community of immunity around vulnerable populations like babies and seniors. The immunization clinic staff can confirm the necessary vaccinations for patients of Jefferson Healthcare.
