Immunizations

Texas state laws require that students are current with immunizations to enroll in school. Our clinic can help students get the immunizations they need in order to attend school.

Help with verification

We assist with checking immunization records to verify that every student that enrolls through the enrollment center is current with immunizations.

Immunization Clinics by appointment

In addition to the scheduled clinics listed above, Immunization Clinics are also available by appointment on Wednesdays from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. Please call our office at 972-494-8538 to set up an appointment.

Who can use the immunization clinic?

Students that don’t have insurance, are underinsured or have Medicaid may get free vaccines through our clinic.

If a student is covered by private insurance, they must see their primary-care physician for immunizations. Students covered by CHIP need to go to the Garland Health Department or their primary-care physician in order to get immunizations.
