Shot clinic for Sept.

The Daviess County Health Department will offer immunizations for children younger than 19 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sept. 4 at Dr. Holsopple’s office; from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Sept. 20 at Country Health Clinic on Cannelburg Road; and from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Sept. 24 at Odon Community Building.

There is an administration fee of $8 per shot if you have no insurance. You may call the Health Department and schedule your child for his/her immunizations. Immunizations are done daily at the Health Department. Call 254-8666 to schedule your child’s immunizations.
