CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) - The Chatham County Health Department is providing free health screenings for all Chatham County school students.
Wednesday will be the last day the free eye, ear, dental and nutrition screenings will be offered with no appointment is necessary. The health department has offered several free screening events throughout the summer to help prepare parents for the upcoming school year.
"They need to have form 3300 completed to enter any Savannah-Chatham school for the first time. If they have been in school in Georgia prior to this year, that form should follow them to their new school," said Suzanne Waller, Nursing Supervisor of Child Health.
The screenings normally cost $30. They will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis. There is no need to bring anything, but parents can expect a line at the health department as the day goes on.
The final day of screenings will be offered on Wednesday, June 20 from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the health department at 1395 Eisenhower Drive in Savannah.
All students entering a Georgia school for the first time, regardless of grade, must have this health screening to enroll for the coming school year.
