Providence Medical Group is offering walk-in night and weekend vaccination clinics with flexible hours for children ages 1–18.
[2 MIN READ]
A new law passed recently by the Washington State Legislature removes the personal and philosophical exemption to the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine your child is required to have before attending school or child care. The new law does not change medical or religious exemptions, which are still valid with proper documentation.
The new requirements take effect July 28, 2019. Your child will not be allowed in school or child care unless you have proof that he or she has completed the required number of MMR vaccine doses. Find out if your child’s immunizations are up-to-date here.
The team at Providence understands that back-to-school time is approaching rapidly and your extensive to-do list doesn’t have room to add much else. To help lighten your load, we’re holding walk-in MMR vaccination clinics on several Wednesday evenings and Saturdays for pediatric patients throughout the Providence Medical Group. Although you can obtain the vaccine from your doctor at an office visit, these clinics may be a more convenient option for your schedule.
