Newton County Health Department is hosting a series of vaccination clinics

Updated:

The Newton County Health Department is hosting a series of vaccination clinics for children and adults.

The clinics are for the Tdap vaccine, covering tetanus, diphtheria, for people ages 11 and older.

The cost is $5 and is open to anyone regardless of insurance.

Tetanus kills about one out of every five people who are infected, while diphtheria and Pertussis can  lead to breathing problems, heart failure or death if not vaccinated.

Officials say people who did not get a Tdap vaccine at an early age should get one as soon as possible.

"Most adults have just gotten a Td after an injury or should have one every 10 years, but what the CDC is recommending now is that one adult should have one dose of Tdap which has the Pertussis in it," says Patti Yates, nursing supervisor of Newton County Health Department.

The clinics will be offered on Tuesday's, July 16th and 30th, and on August 6th and 13th, at the Newton County Health Department in Neosho.
