Enrollment Center Clinic

New protocols for Immunization clinics

Our Care Van program provides free immunizations. To qualify, children must:

  • be from 3 to 18 years of age
  • be uninsured, medically under-insured, or on Medicaid

What to bring

  • Your child's immunization record
  • Intake forms (see the Patient forms page to download the intake forms)
  • A mask

To protect our families and medical professionals, we must limit the number of people inside the clinic. Only one adult and the child(ren) receiving the immunizations will be allowed inside of the clinic. Please arrange child care for other children.  Everyone who enters the clinic is required to follow social distancing guidelines and wear a mask. We apologize for any burden this causes.

 To schedule an appointment, call 972-494-8538.

We provide a variety of health and related services to students and their families. The clinic at Student Services offers a full-time registered nurse and clinic assistant as part of its staff. Please call our office for an appointment or more information.

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

Help with verification

We help check immunization records to make sure that every student that enrolls through the enrollment center is current with immunizations.

Care Van Immunization clinics 

Our immunization clinic provides an opportunity for students to get the vaccines they need. Through our Care Van program, students can get vaccinated during the enrollment process to help them attend school faster. 

To learn more about immunization requirements, see our immunizations page.

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

Costs are underwritten by The Caring Foundation of Texas. 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 to get immunizations.
