“Catch Up” Vaccines Available at Health Department

August 4th, 2010 by mike Leave a reply »

The Kentucky Department for Public Health and the Kentucky Vaccine Program currently has funding to enhance vaccine efforts in young adults (aged 19 through 26 years). As a result of this special program, the Martin County Health Department will be offering these “catch up” vaccines at a discounted rate to young adults who are uninsured (no insurance) or underinsured (insurance does not cover vaccines).

Vaccines available in this program help to protect against the following vaccine preventable diseases: Human Papillomavirus (HPV), Tetanus, Diphtheria and “Whooping Cough”.

Vaccines help prevent many serious diseases and thus, improve the health and well-being of our community.

These vaccines will be administered by appointment and at low or no cost, depending on income. For further information or to make an appointment, call the health department at 606-298-7752.
