It's crazy that we're already talking about "Back To School".

You certainly don't want to have a mad rush before school starts. You'll probably have enough to do with making picking up and drop off arrangements, getting school supplies, and everyone getting used to new schedules. You can get ahead of the curve by getting your kid's health requirements out of the way.

It's never too early to get your kids ready for school and part of that is getting them vaccinated. There are certain base requirements in Texas that students have to meet to be in public schools K-12. The vaccines available on Saturday meet those requirements. Here's some information on eligibility from the City Of Lubbock:

Health Department clinics are open to any child six months of age and older in the Lubbock area who is eligible for the Texas Vaccines for Children Program. This includes those kids who are uninsured, have Medicaid or CHIP, are American Indian or Alaskan Natives, or who are underinsured. Please bring the child’s most current shot record to the clinic. Families with private insurance may receive vaccinations for their children who are 14 or older.

The vaccine clinic will take place from ten to two Saturday at Monterey High School at 3211 47th Street. There is one more chance coming up on August 12th at Estacado High School.  You might have some questions about all of this, and if you do you can call the City Of Lubbock Health Department at 806-775-2933.
