Krista Postai, President and CEO of Community Health Center of Southeast Kansas, asked fortscott.biz to dispell some confusion.
“There has been some confusion in Ft. Scott about immunizations (at CHC/SEK),” she said. “In the past, we understood that Mercy (Hospital) usually required a well-child visit or a physical (exam) before administering immunizations.”
” While it’s a great idea to get your child’s immunizations as part of their regular check-up, that’s not always possible so it’s CHC/SEK’s policy to provide shots on a walk-in basis at all of our clinics anytime we are open.”
No appointment is necessary for the immunizations.
Shots can be administered at the center no matter if the primary care physician is affiliated with CHC/SEK.
“We also do immunizations for anyone regardless of who their primary care provider is, so you don’t have to be one of our patients to get you or your child vaccinated,” she said. ” We do ask that you bring your child’s immunization record.”
The facility is located at 403 Woodland Hills Blvd., at the site of the former Mercy Hospital.
