Oklahoma City schools offers mobile immunization clinics
By Jay Dillon
Oklahoma City schools open classrooms again in just three weeks and OKCPS will offer immunization clinics to go at several schools in the metro.For the first time, OKCPS, Oklahoma Caring Foundation, and Oklahoma City-County Health Department are teaming up to bring Caring Van clinics to select schools to promote immunizations."Students must have current immunizations to start school and we have thousands of children in the District who need updated vaccinations. In the past we have had students miss the start of school to get their needed shots; but thanks to the Caring Van this year we are being proactive and addressing the problem in a new way," said Dr. Teri Bell, OKCPS Executive Director of Student Support Services. The vans will be available from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the dates at the locations below:
July 14th at John Marshall Mid-High School - 12201 N. Portland
July 15th at Douglass Mid-High - 900 Martin Luther King Blvd
