Children are required to receive one dose of Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and acellular pertussis, adolescent/adult formulation) or Td (tetanus and diphtheria, adult formulation) administered as a booster dose prior to entering the seventh grade.

The Madison County/London City Health District is holding a clinic from 2 to 6 p.m. Aug. 5 by appointment. The cost of the vaccine is $10.

Every child entering kindergarten in Madison County must have a physical examination and an up-to-date immunization record.

The Health District offers physicals and immunizations. The cost is $60 plus the cost of vaccines. Most insurance plans are accepted. No one is turned away due to inability to pay.

All physicals and immunizations must be completed and returned to the school on or before the first day of school.

Your child will also need a birth certificate to enroll in kindergarten. Birth certificates for every county in Ohio are available at the Health District office. Hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:15 p.m., Monday-Friday. The office offers same-day service. The fee is $23.

For anyone who cannot come in during office hours, applications are available at http://co.madison.oh.us. Look for the Health District link on the left side of the screen and then for the Office of Vital Statistics link. Mail it to the Health District. Certificates will be mailed the same day applications are received.

For more information or to schedule an appointment, call (740) 852-3065.
