PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WMBB) — As students return to school, they also need to make sure they are up to date on their appropriate shots.

Students can also get these shots at any primary care doctor.

Health Department Spokeswoman, Heather Kretzer says you can call the health department directly to make an appointment.

“We just want to make sure that the kids are ready to go for school, with the most protection as possible, and those immunizations,” said Kretzer.
