Health Department and Partners Providing Services and Education July 5

Twiggs County Health Department invites students and their families to attend this year’s Back to School Bash July 5, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the health department at 26 N Main Street in Jeffersonville.  During the event, children will have the opportunity to receive free school supplies, giveaways, school-required immunizations and other health services.

“The new school year is getting closer, and we want all of our students and parents to be ready before it begins,” said Stefanie Ransom, Health Educator at Twiggs County Health Department. “They’ll be ready for class with their new school supplies and protected from illnesses through the year thanks to their immunizations.”

Families attending the Back to School Bash will be able to get their children up-to-date on immunizations required by Georgia law. Health department staff will determine which vaccines are needed based on age and/or grade level and the child’s immunization record. For a list of required student vaccines, visit NCHD52.org/Students or contact the health department at 478-945-3351 for more information.

In addition to providing services to prepare students for the next school year, staff members from North Central Health District’s Health Equity program, Communicable Disease program and Breast and Cervical Cancer program will be in attendance to provide information on services offered through those public health programs. Staff members will also be joined by community partners, including Humana, CareSource, Twiggs County Family Connections, Middle Georgia Regional Library and more.

“We’re excited to see everyone that comes to visit us on July 5,” said Ransom. “We’ve got great partners, great services and more available to our community, and we want people to know about all the resources available to keep Twiggs County healthy.”

During the Back to School Bash, families will have the chance to visit the WIC Farmer’s Market, which will be at the health department 8:30 a.m.–1 p.m. July 5. This coinciding event features fresh, locally-grown produce, free to WIC participants who present their ID card and at low-cost to anyone who would like to purchase any fruits or vegetables.
