Richland County Health Department is announcing our county winner in the 2016 MT TeenVax Challenge! The Montana Immunization Program and RCHD are very pleased with the response to this first challenge. Statewide, there were 319 entries in 44 counties. Winners were selected randomly. Out of the 31 entries in Richland County, Parker Syth was the lucky name drawn to receive a $50 Amazon Gift Card. Congratulations!

The MT TeenVax Challenge is a multi-year campaign to provide education, resources, and information about Tdap, meningococcal, HPV, and influenza vaccines for providers, parents, and teens. These vaccines are routinely administered at age 11-12 years with catch up for those 13 and older. To qualify for this challenge, youth must have received one dose of Tdap, MCV4 and HPV.

The MT TeenVax Challenge is in partnership with the Montana Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics, Montana Academy of Family Physicians and the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Montana Care Van program.

The 2017 MT TeenVax Challenge will open for entries in June 2017 and last throughout the fall. Watch for more information or follow us on Facebook. Please contact the Richland County Health Department at 406-433-2207 with any questions or for further information on immunizations and clinic times.
