Free Immunizations for Incoming Sixth Graders

Lacamas Medical Group has partnered with both Camas and Washougal schools by providing a free immunization clinic for incoming sixth graders on Wednesday, June 3, from 3 – 6:30 PM. They will require a parent/guardian accompany the student, plus immunization record. This clinic will focus on the Tdap and Varicella requirements.

Sixth graders are required to have three doses of DTaP, DT or Td if the last dose is given on or after the fourth birthday. Additionally, the student needs 1 dose Tdap if he/she is 11 years old and it has been at least 5 years since the last DTaP, DT or Td.

Varicella requirement is a minimum of 1 dose, which must be given on or after the first birthday. Parent-reported history of disease is acceptable.

No appointments are required. Lacamas Medical Group is located at 3240 NE 3rd Ave., Camas, WA 98607. Phone: (360) 838-2440.
