There is no charge for immunizations. The student must have parental/guardian consent, and the family must have the most current immunization records with them at the time the shot is to be given. For schedules and more information, check out the website at www.carevan.org.
CareVan will be holding a Childhood Immunization Clinic on Saturday, August 10th at 1st Christian Church in Plano from 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM. Details for this clinic can be found here: English / Español
Vaccines for Children Program
The federal Vaccines for Children Program was developed to support efforts to increase childhood immunization levels by providing publicly purchased vaccines, including influenza vaccines, to eligible children. A large number of Texas children qualify for influenza vaccines through the program. The majority of the vaccines provided through the program are administered in the offices of private physicians who are program providers. The physicians receive the vaccines at no cost in exchange for abiding by federal laws concerning the use of the influenza vaccine.
Call the clinic before you go, to confirm their schedule.
