Summer is half over and parents are starting to prepare for the new school year. Getting vaccinations for school-aged children before the start of the school year is important to getting the year off to a good start.

Montgomery County Public Health District will be staying open late until 6:00 pm on two Wednesdays in July – July 19 and 26 – for families who need a late appointment. Regular clinic hours are Monday through Thursday from 8:00 am to 12:00 noon and 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Appointments are also available on Fridays from 8:00 am to 12:00 noon. Space is limited and appointments are required. Please call 936-523-5020 to make an appointment.

MCPHD offers vaccinations to Medicaid, uninsured, and underinsured children up to age 19 for a $10 administration fee per vaccine. The clinic is located at 1300 South Loop 336 West in Conroe. Traditional Medicaid is accepted, however, MCPHD is not a provider for CHIP.

Now is the time to get your children in to see their health care providers. Making your appointments now reduces your family’s Back to School stress by getting those vaccinations done before the start of school. Vaccines are an important tool to protect your children.
