The Allegany County Health Department will be offering free 7th grade required vaccinations for Allegany County school students at three upcoming drive-through clinics.  Students must be accompanied by a parent/legal guardian. 

Clinics will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. on the following dates:

  • September 10 – Allegany County Fairgrounds  (rain or shine)

In the event of inclement weather on August 24 or 28 the clinics will be canceled. The fairgrounds clinic, which is under the large pavilion by the Multipurpose Building, will be held rain or shine.

Available vaccines:

  • Tdap:  This is a combination vaccine that protects against three potentially life-threatening bacterial diseases: tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (whooping cough).
  • Meningococcal:  This vaccine protects against certain strains of meningitis.
  • HPV (Human Papillomavirus):  This vaccine protects against strains of HPV that cause cancers of the reproductive organs.  Vaccination is recommended for both males and females.
