If the new school year hasn't already begun in your area, it will soon. Is your child fully ready to start a successful new year by meeting all *Georgia school health requirements? If not, it's not too late! You can safely, conveniently, and affordably get any or all of it done at a one-stop spot. Our county health departments in North Georgia provide school children with the required Hearing, Dental, Vision and BMI/Nutrition Screenings, and Immunizations.

The health departments charge a total of $60 for all the above screenings and $21.90 for each required immunization for children who are uninsured or underinsured - however, no one will be turned away for inability to pay. For those who have medical coverage, our health departments accept Medicaid (including Amerigroup, CareSource, Peachstate and WellCare) and health insurance plans such as Peachcare for Kids, HUMANA, AETNA, United Health Care, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Ambetter, CIGNA, Coventry, etc.

Vaccination recommendations for students attending school in Georgia, along with Form 3231, can be found at dph.georgia.gov/schoolvaccines.
