The Chatham County Health Department on Eisenhower is offering free vision, hearing, dental and nutrition screenings for Chatham County school students on Thursday, July 19th and July 26th from 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. No appointment necessary. (Normally a $30 fee applies when getting the screening at the health department). Students will be seen on a first come, first served basis. Other immunization services will also be available at regular cost.
Students entering a Georgia school for the first time – no matter what the grade level – must have a completed Certificate of Vision, Hearing, Dental, and Nutrition screening form. (“First time” means never enrolled in a Georgia school before at any time in their lives).
In addition, children born on or after January 1, 2002 who are attending seventh grade and new entrants into Georgia schools in grades 8 through 12 must have received one dose of Tdap vaccine and one dose of meningococcal vaccine.
