Marion Public Health begins offering walk-in immunizations

Marion Public Health has made some changes they say are important to help assure Marion’s infants, children, and adults are able to receive the vaccines they need. The public no longer needs to make an appointment to see a nurse. Walk-in immunizations will be available every Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 8:00am – 3:00pm.

Marion Public Health staff will do all the registration and insurance work while you’re at the walk-in clinic. You just need to bring your shot records and insurance documentation.

In addition to the walk-in clinic for vaccines, you can also walk in for TB screening and lead screening.

Vaccines save lives, says Marion Public Health. Vaccinated children will not only be protected from disease, but they help protect other children who are unable to get vaccinated for some other medical reason.

Marion Public Health is also continuing their fight against lead poisoning. The majority of Marion’s children live in zip codes that have been designated by the Ohio Department of Health as having a high risk for childhood lead poisoning yet fewer than 20% of Marion’s children ages 0-6 are being screened for lead poisoning.

To get your child screened, stop in to Marion Public Health at 181 South Main Street in Marion, during their walk-in immunization hours.
