Beginning Thursday, September 14 the Steuben County Public Health Department will offer routine immunizations Monday through Friday at their office in the Steuben County Office Building in Bath. Immunizations such as Tdap, meningitis, HPV, polio and others required for school can be obtained by calling 607-664-2438 to schedule an appointment.
“Immunizations are the greatest public health achievement and offer much needed protection against deadly diseases,” said Public Health Director, Darlene Smith. “COVID has disrupted a lot of our routines, including getting regular immunizations. Now is the time to get back on track, and we aim to make that as easy as possible for our residents by offering them every day of the work week.”
COVID vaccines and tuberculin skin tests will continue to be offered twice a month on the second Wednesday and fourth Tuesday from 2:00 to 5:00 pm. Interested participants must schedule an appointment by calling the Public Health office.
Attendees must wear appropriate face coverings and are expected to wait 15-30 minutes after COVID vaccination for observation but will not need to wait after routine immunizations. Attendees should wear short sleeves or appropriate clothing for vaccination and bring their COVID vaccination card or proof of vaccination dates if applicable.
Those currently under isolation at the time of the clinic due to a positive COVID-19 test result are not eligible to attend.
