Health department sets clinics for next week
The Watertown Department of Public Health, 515 S. First St., will hold tuberculosis and immunization clinics next week.
The tuberculosis clinic will be held Tuesday. Skin testing hours will be 2:30-4:30 p.m. Reading of the skin test will be Thursday from 2:30-4:30 p.m.
Cost for the tuberculosis testing is $15. No appointment is necessary.
The immunization clinic will be held Thursday from 2:30-4:30 p.m. An administration fee of $15 will be charged to city residents for each visit. Noncity residents will be charged $20. Forward/Medical assistance cards will be accepted only for childhood immunizations.
Children through 18 years of age who are Medicaid eligible, uninsured, American Indian or Alaskan Native or underinsured (no coverage for vaccines) will still be able to receive immunizations from the department. If a child is insured, parents should make an appointment with their primary care provider for vaccinations.
If a child qualifies, parents or guardians are required to bring the child’s original immunization record to the clinic and accompany their children if they are under age 18. If a parent is unable to attend the clinic with their child, written consent may be sent with the child and/or responsible adult.
