Pagosa students who don’t have insurance can get free immunizations, thanks to our community partner Seeds of Learning preschool and a grant from the La Plata Electric Association’s Round-up fund.
Parents can call San Juan Basin Health Department at 264-2409, Ext. 213, to make an appointment for their child anytime between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Wednesday, April 20.? If children have not received immunizations from San Juan Basin Health before, they must bring their shot records.
This annual grant coincides with the Week of the Young Child and provides families that have no insurance with an opportunity to get caught up on their child’s shots.
There will also be immunizations offered that are recommended for children at particular ages, but not required to attend school.
Parents are welcome to ask questions during their appointment about what other immunizations are recommended for their child or teen. They can also visit sjbhd.org/immunizations.
