June 11 - Health Department to Provide FREE Vision, Hearing, Dental, & Nutrition Screening for School Students

Category: Health & Hospitals

Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

June 11, 2018 - The Chatham County Health Department wants to help parents beat the back-to-school rush by offering free vision, hearing, dental, and nutrition screenings on two separate days this summer at the Eisenhower health department location, 1395 Eisenhower Drive. Students will be seen on a first come, first served basis from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on July 19 and 26. 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. (“New entrant” means any child entering any school in Georgia for the first time or entering after having been absent from a Georgia school for more than 12 months or one school year).

For additional information, call the Chatham County Health Department at 356-2441.
