Kanawha County Students Get Vaccines as School Starts Friday

With the start of school just around the corner, kids and parents are rushing to get all the necessary vaccines in order, and that has the Kanawha-Charleston Health Department doing its best to meet the demand. Kanawha-Charleston has been covering all clinical services for the Putnam County Health Department, which folded in June after a financial crisis. School starts in Putnam County August 22nd, but the start date is only 4 days away in Charleston. The August 9th start date is the earliest in county history. There is no vaccine shortage, but there is a rush to make sure the necessary vaccination records and shots are in order.
