Free immunization offered at public health districts
Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is a group of viruses linked to multiple health conditions. HPV is so common that nearly all sexually active pople will get it in their lifetime. Some of these infections will lead to infertility, multiple types of cancer and death. Fortunately there is a vaccine available to prevent HPV infection. To protect the health of Idahoans, a statewide HPV Vaccination Day will take place February 9.
As cancer prevention advocates, Eastern Idaho Public Health will be joining the statewide effort by holding FREE HPV vaccine clinics throughout the district.
It’s advised to call to make an appointment, but walk-ins will be welcome. The health district will be billing Medicaid and insurance. The clinics ask that you bring your immunization record with you.
The Challis Clinic will be offering vaccinations from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Call 879-2504 to make arrangements.
Lemhi County will also be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Call 756-2123 for more information.
