ORLANDO, FL – The Florida Department of Health in Orange County (DOH-Orange) is urging parents to prepare their children now for the upcoming school year by attending the Back-to-School Immunization event running July 20 through August 8, 2020. 

This free immunization event hosted by DOH-Orange has been planned 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 (4 years to 18 years of age) entering, attending, or transferring to Florida schools. 

WHAT: Free school-required immunization shots and/or the certified DH680 form (child must be present for 680 forms).

and attend daycare or school.

Know Before You Go:

  • For ages 4 years to 18 years of age only
  • Bring student’s current shot record
