As the new school year draws closer, parents with school-aged children never seem to have enough time to get everything done. In the next two weeks, the DeKalb County Board of Health is giving parents an extra two hours by staying open later.

 The Board of Health centers will be open from 8:15 a.m. until 7 p.m.  July 30—Aug.  2 and Aug. 6—8.  Services include immunizations; vision; hearing; dental and nutrition screenings; and sports physicals. The Vital Records office, in the Richardson Health Center, also will be open late for those needing birth certificates for children born in Georgia. No appointment is necessary.

 All health centers and Vital Records will observe normal hours of operation: 8:15 a.m. until 5 p.m., on Aug. 3.

 The health center locations are:

• Clifton Springs Health Center, 3110 Clifton Springs Rd., Decatur.
