Back-To-School Free Immunization Event in Orange County

By Kent Donahue

June 27, 2018

In partnership with Orange County Public Schools and Orange Blossom Pediatrics, the Florida Department of Health in Orange County is urging parents to prepare their children now for the upcoming school year.  

This free immunization event has been planned in the community so parents can vaccinate their children and obtain their DH680 form for school. Don’t wait, vaccinate! 

WHO:             Orange County Public School (OCPS) students and children (2 months to 18 years of age) entering, attending, or transferring to Florida schools. 

WHAT:  Free school-required immunization shots and/or the certified DH680 form (first come, first served).

WHERE:  OCPS Academic Center for Excellence
701 West Livingston Street, Orlando, FL 32805

WHEN:  Monday, July 23 through Saturday, 28, 2018 (8am to 3pm)
Sunday, July 29, 2018 (9am - 2pm)

WHY:  Florida requires certain vaccines to be administered before children may enroll
and attend childcare and school.

Parents and students must bring the following:

  • Most recent immunization record and original Birth Certificate or Social Security card
  • Valid photo identification such as driver’s license, state ID, passport, or military ID
  • Clients 17 years of age and younger must be accompanied by one of the following adults: parent, grandparent, stepparent, Uncle, Aunt, Sister or Brother
  • Nonrelated adults accompanying clients 17 years of age and younger must present an original notarized letter signed by the parent or legal guardian
  • Legal guardians must present the most recent court ordered paperwork

Background

Services are provided on a first come, first served basis. Parents are urged to arrive early. Those with private insurance and Medicaid can go directly to their medical care provider and obtain the same services. 

A certified DH 680 immunization form is required for school and daycare entry, and is provided at no charge when vaccinations are received.  If a client only needs a DH 680 form, an administrative fee will apply. For additional information, please call 407-858-1444 or visit orange.floridahealth.gov.
