Beaumont Health Department extends hours for immunizations
Immunizations are never fun for kids but the Beaumont Public Health Department has extended its hours to make it easier for parents to have their children ready for the start of school.
With so many people working during the day, the Health Department's normal hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. have been extended this week to 7 a.m. until 6 p.m.
And dozens of parents have already taken advantage of the extra hours.
Monday afternoon several parents brought their children to the Beaumont Health Department to get one or more shots.
Public health director Sherry Ulmer says it can sometimes be a hassle for working parents who are trying to get their children registered for the first day of school, especially when they find out their child has not had all the required immunizations.
Ulmer says if parents bring their student to the Health Department they will try and get families in and out as soon as possible.
