An amendment to a contract with Arizona Department of Health Services for immunization services is to be discussed at the Sept. 9 meeting of the Pinal County Public Health Services District Board of Directors.
The meeting begins at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday in the Pinal County Administrative Complex’s Board of Supervisors Hearing Room, 135 N. Pinal St. in Florence.
The term of the contract amendment is July 1, 2020-June 30, 2021, with the total contract amount not to exceed $234,558.
The contract offsets the public health services district’s cost of providing immunization services to children and adults and has no impact on the general fund, according to the agenda.
“The Public Health Services District has the strategic goal to sustain immunization coverage rate of at least 80% in the children 19 to 35 months of age thus reducing the risk of childhood illness. This contract assists the district in meeting this goal,” the agenda states.
Pinal County Board of Supervisors members serve as the county’s public health services district board of directors.
