School just let out for summer a hot second ago, but it’s already time to get ready to go back to school. For us that means thriftily shopping for used vests at the Goodwill. (Not really. But it was fun to take pictures. Those are tapestry airplanes, y’all.)
We do need to get cracking on that long list of back-to-school prep. You know–buy notebooks, put labels on gym clothes, protect your kids from meningococcal meningitis.
Minute Clinic offers a variety of back-to-school vaccinations so that your kids don’t miss their first day. It is important to know your state’s requirements for vaccinations such as meningitis and pertussis.
Find out which vaccinations are required in your state. In Virginia where I live, a meningitis vaccine is required for students entering college, and a pertussis booster (the Tdap) is required for middle school students.
We’ve always had our kids’ inoculations done by their pediatrician, but I was very impressed by the services we received from Minute Clinic at our kid’s camp physical last year. I’d consider Minute Clinic as a viable alternative to our ped for shots. Service was fast, the clinic was open much later than our doctor’s office, and I could buy gummi bears while we waited.
In addition to vaccines You can also get your little sport’s pre-participation sports physicals done right now for just $39–$20 off the usual price. Even if it’s not required by your school or org, it’s important to make sure your kids are healthy & safe to participate in their favorite sport.
Don’t overlook those flying the nest this year. Kids leaving home for college need a college physical. Like I mentioned, my state requires certain shots. Check her to see if your state requires a college physical or any vaccines. MinuteClinic is also offering a FREE $22 coupon book when you visit. (No purchase necessary. Available while supplies last through 12/1/14.
Back to school is happening whether you want it to or not. Get that last item checked off your list at Minute Clinic.
