The Casper-Natrona County Public Health Department is offering free chickenpox vaccinations to children under the age of 18.

Trina Soper, the nursing supervisor at the Casper-Natrona County Public Health Department, says chickenpox, a contagious viral infection, can cause significant problems for some children.

“A lot of people think chickenpox is just a mild childhood disease, but, for some people, it really isn’t – it can be a serious, life-threatening issue for some,” Soper said.

Soper says the health department also has a limited number of free flu shots available for children ages three through 18.

“We can (administer free flu shots) for children who are uninsured or have Medicaid,” Soper said.

Soper says parents must present a vaccination record before they can get their child vaccinated.

Flu and chickenpox vaccinations will be administered at the health department’s downtown facility, 475 S. Spruce St., from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and from 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday. The health department will administer the vaccinations while supplies last.
