County Offers Free Vaccines Ahead of School Year

The county has scheduled two sessions to immunize children up to 18.

Before sending the kids off to school later this month, check if their immunization records are up to date.

The county is offering free recommended vaccinations for children up to 18 who are eligible under the Vaccines for Children program, according to a news release. This includes children without health insurance and who are on Medicaid.

Parents do not need to schedule appointments, but must bring a copy of their child's immunization records, the release reads. Students entering college can receive the meningitis vaccine.

Vaccinations are available at the following times and locations:

Monday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Woodlawn Health Center

1811 Woodlawn Drive

Baltimore, MD 21207


Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Eastern Family Resource Center

9100 Franklin Square Drive

Baltimore, MD 21237

For more information, check out the county's website or call (410)-887-2705.

The parents do have to take the steps to get their children there, and have immunization records, etc. Parents should also know that Maryland has an insurance program for children: http://mmcp.dhmh.maryland.gov/chp/SitePages/Home.aspx

Say it ain't so Buzz, say it ain't so. I don't want my tax dollars helping some poor kid and their parents. This is a total waste. Let's file a FOIA and see who made this decision. I want all of the notes from the meetings and all e-mails. And, if we don't get them ,lets go to court. C'mon Buzz, rally the troops, this is just up your alley, gov't overreaching. What right do they have to help inoculate anyone, that's personal responsibility and I don't want my hard-earned tax dollars going to this. C'mon Buzz, lets get Buck, JD, "wilson" and Meg on board, we can stop this!

I'm with you Buzz, I'm with you. I've seen the light.It's so exhilarating, I feel so free. Let's get those sob's. You know darn well like I do "the office of fred" has someone connected and has profited from this. Lets get to the bottom of this together. We have too much gov't and most of it's bad, so lets correct it. I hope you're running next election I'm signing up to be your campaign manager.I will tirelessly to raise funds for you. You're my guy! We've got to bring a halt to this and we can. I'm with you Buzz.

In the blog there will be where Baltimore County places in unemployment, healthcare along with some of he data on the SS budget. It will take about a day or two to complete it but don't look for a rose but more of a thorn bush. Here is a sample: http://catonsville.patch.com/articles/baltimore-county-ranked-below-average-in-healthiness Not a good start and there is more to come.
