Albany -- School starts back in less than a month, and parents need to know there are new immunization requirements for students.  

Children entering kindergarten, sixth grade or enrolling in school for the first time in Georgia, must have a second dose of both the chickenpox and mumps vaccine. Also, children born after January 1, 2006 must be vaccinated against Hepatitis A. And children under five must have a vaccine against pneumonia.

Two immunization clinics will be held so parents can avoid that back to school rush and get their kids up to date.    

"The wait time will certainly be decreased and if they run into some problems where they don't have all the information they need, it will allow them to get that information as well," said Health Department LPN Suzette Profit.    

The immunization clinics will be held July 21st and August 4th from noon until four at the Dougherty County Health Department.
