Back to School Immunization

July 09, 2015

The Florida Department of Health in Orange County (DOH-Orange) in collaboration with Orange County Public Schools (OCPS) are urging parents to prepare their children now for the upcoming school year.  For a list of events in the community where parents can vaccinate their children and obtain their 680 form for school click on the flyer (PDF 443KB) and for the events at OCPS see this flyer (PDF 1.4MB).

Parents can also use their medical homes or private doctor to have their children vaccinated and avoid the last minute back-to-school rush and long lines.  Families, who do not have a medical home, can see the second page of the flyer for a list of children’s medical providers.

Parents are urged to arrive early to obtain a walk-in ticket as services are provided on a walk-in basis.  Children must be accompanied by an adult family member or legal guardian to receive immunizations. If not, a notarized permission form, signed by the parent or legal guardian, must be presented before services are rendered.  A copy of each child’s immunization record and government-issued, valid photo identification of the adult relative or legal guardian are required.  Parents can avoid the lines and go directly to their primary care provider.

A certified DH 680 immunization form is required for school entry and is provided free once vaccinations are received.  If a client only needs a DH 680 form, an administrative fee may apply. You can also obtain this form at your child’s doctor’s office and the health departments’ immunization clinics or medical records departments if your child is already up-to-date on their immunizations.
