DeKalb Health Centers Gear Up for 2023 Back-to-School Season with Extended Clinic Hours

DECATUR, Ga. It’s almost that time, again! In the coming weeks, the school bell will ring once again for students in DeKalb County, with the City Schools of Decatur starting Aug. 1 and the DeKalb County School District starting Aug. 8.

Beginning Mon., July 31, the DeKalb County Board of Health will kick off the upcoming school year with additional extended clinic hours to help parents make sure their children are first day ready for required health services. Services will include immunizations, vision, hearing, dental and nutrition screenings.

Parents should bring:

  • Each child and his/her immunization record.
  • Cash, a debit or credit card, or a check drawn from a Georgia bank.
  • Each child’s insurance card. The Board of Health accepts Medicaid, PeachCare for Kids and State Health Benefit Plan (Blue Cross/Blue Shield and United HealthCare). Other insurance plans may be accepted. Please call to verify.
