Enrollment Center Clinic

We provide a variety of health and related services to students and their families. The clinic is staffed with a full time registered nurse and clinic assistant. Please call our office at 972-494-8538 for an appointment or more information.

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 scheduled clinics, 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?

Vaccines are free for students that:

  • don’t have insurance
  • are underinsured
  • have Medicaid
  • are American Indian/Native American or Alaskan Native

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.
