Schedule Back to School Vaccinations

As the new school year and a return to more in-person learning approaches, it’s more important than ever to keep your children safe from dangerous or deadly diseases. Keep your kids up-to-date on their wellness visits and routine vaccinations by making an appointment with their doctor. You can also view their medical records from anywhere by using Guthrie’s online platform, eGuthrie. With only a few clicks, you can access their vaccine history and easily share their records for school, sports, childcare, summer camp, or travel. Learn more at www.Guthrie.org/ChildHealthScreenings and www.Guthrie.org/ChildVaccines. Schedule an appointment by calling 866-GUTHRIE (866-488-4743) or at www.Guthrie.org.
