Walk-in vaccines offered

The Monroe County Health Department encourages adults age 19 and over to get a Tdap vaccination, which is for protection against tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis, also known as whooping cough.

The latter can kill infants, so the best way to protect them is by vaccinating all adults, who could at anytime come in contact with babies.

The department holds walk-in Tdap vaccination clinics from 2 to 4 p.m. Tuesdays and 10 a.m. to noon Fridays at the Gato Building, 1100 Simonton St., Key West.

Appointments may be scheduled by calling 305-809-5603.

Shots will be given regardless of a person's ability to pay, but people are asked to bring an insurance card or proof of income.
