Back-to-School checklist should include Immunizations
The start of the school year is just around the corner. So parents may want to take a break from buying notebooks, calculators, math sets, and clothes to make sure your children are immunized.
Immunizations are an important part of public health, and the state law requires students in Texas schools to be immunized against certain vaccine-preventable diseases.
Collin County Health Care Services understands that it can be hard to find the time and money to get your children vaccinated, but we would like to stress the importance of getting the required vaccines at the earliest possible time, to avoid the back-to-school immunization rush that occurs every year during the month of August.
Collin County Health Care Services is open Monday through Friday, from 7:30-11 a.m. and 1-4 p.m. A complete shot record is required and a school note alone will not be accepted as proof of the shot record. Immunizations range from $0 to $14 per shot and no appointment is necessary.
