Free vaccine clinic offered

There are vaccines for diseases other than Covid-19 and many children have some catching up to do. To help with that, Carlton County Public Health will hold a free vaccine clinic for kids ages 11-18 from 3:30 to 4:45 p.m. May 10 at the Carlton County Community Services Building, 14 North 11th Street.

There is no charge. Insurance information will be collected and insurance billed if possible, but there is no charge if the child is uninsured.

Available vaccines will include Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis), meningococcal conjugate, HPV (human papillomavirus), Covid-19 and influenza.

Preregistration is required at rb.gy/3ftcnc or by calling 218-879-4511. Attendees should wear masks.
