Description

The program immunizes school-aged children in conjunction with school nurse assistance. We also provide related health education. We have promoted this program to area schools since 1998. Since Fall 2001, New Jersey law requires hepatitis B vaccination for 6th grade and kindergarten admission. We continue to offer the shots on-site at schools.
