In order to meet school immunization requirements, the Darke County Health Department will be hosting a vaccine clinic at the Darke County Board of Developmental Disabilities from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 26, 2022. This is a walk-in clinic, no appointments necessary. The Darke County Board of Developmental Disabilities is located at 5844 Jaysville-St. Johns Road, Greenville. The clinic will run while supplies last.

Students who are incoming 7th and 12th graders in the fall (current 6th and 11th graders) are both required to receive vaccines. Those going into the 7th grade will need a Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Acellular Pertussis) and Menveo (Meningococcal) vaccine. The required vaccine for incoming 12th graders is the Menveo vaccine. Families can avoid the wait this fall, as patients are typically in and out of this clinic within 15 minutes.

This clinic is at no cost to families. For billing purposes, those who have medical coverage should bring a copy of their insurance card. A copy of the card will be made onsite and then the insurance company will be billed. The Health Department gets reimbursed from the insurance companies, so no family will receive a bill from this vaccine clinic.

Students under the age of 18 need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Those 18 and over must wait 15 minutes after the vaccine if they are driving themselves.

For any questions or additional information on this clinic or state vaccine requirements, please contact the Health Department at 937-548-4196 ext. 224.
