Chatham County Health Department will offer free vision, hearing, dental, and nutrition screenings for Chatham County school students at two events in July. Normally a $30 fee applies when getting the screening at the health department. The events will take place at the Chatham County Health Department, 1395 Eisenhower Drive:
8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., Wednesday, July 12
8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m., Tuesday, July 25
Students entering a Georgia school for the first time – no matter what the grade level – must have a completed Certificate of Vision, Hearing, Dental, and Nutrition screening form. “First time” means never enrolled in a Georgia school before at any time in their lives.
No appointment is necessary and students will be seen on a first come, first served basis. Immunization services will also be available at regular cost.
