Wyoming County School Board offers immunizations for students

WYOMING COUNTY, WV (WOAY) – Wyoming County Schools announced Monday that it would help to offer immunizations to its students.

The school board is working with the Tug River Health Association to provide the immunizations via Tug River Health’s mobile health clinic. Superintendent Cline says this is another way to help students avoid additional obstacles and allow students to return to school in the fall.

“One of those obstacles could be, especially in the times of COVID, not being able to get to a doctor to get the required immunizations,” said Wyoming County Schools Superintendent Deirdre Cline. “So we are partnering with our mobile health unit through Tug River, and they are going to have a set schedule that will bring that mobile unit to different communities around our county so that students can come there and get immunizations.”

The mobile immunizations will be provided at Huff Consolidated School on August 12th, Herndon Consolidated School on August 14th, Oceana Middle School on August 17th, and Mullens Middle School on August 20th. The mobile clinic will also provide sports physicals for students. Parents are required to bring shot records and proof of insurance if you are insured.
