Providers from Lake Regional Orthopedics and Sports Medicine will be at Camdenton High School to provide free sports physicals for middle school and high school students. The physicals meet MSHSAA requirements for participation in school sports practices and games. In addition, the Camden County Health Department will be available to give meningitis and Tdap vaccinations to incoming eighth graders and seniors.
No appointments are needed. Students should wear loose-fitting clothing and have a parent or guardian present. The general and musculoskeletal exam includes height, weight, blood pressure and vision checks. Only sports physicals will be offered; students will not be able to receive physicals for other activities, such as scouting.
To receive the immunization, students must bring their immunization record and insurance card. Most insurances cover the full cost of immunizations, and students without insurance will not be charged. Parents are encouraged to check their plan benefits.
