APHD provides 2,348 back-to-school immunizations

The Amarillo Public Health Department recently conducted back-to-school immunization clinics for students.

From Aug. 7-17, APHD saw 942 patients and administered 2,348 vaccines. This is an average of about 294 immunizations a day.

“Our recent immunization totals are actually pretty standard for this time of the year as children and adults go back to school,” said APHD Director Casie Stoughton. “We generally see a lot of patients during this time of the year.

“Immunizations are vitally important to protect everyone in our community, especially as we head into the back to school season.”

APHD charges $13.75 per immunization, with the fee not to exceed $30 for children. Medicaid clients receive free immunizations and no child is turned away for an inability to pay for immunizations.
