The Florida Department of Health in Lee County is reminding parents of kindergartners, 7th graders, out-of-state, transfer, and college students to make sure their children’s immunizations are up to date before the start of the new school year.
The Department is accepting appointments for back to school immunizations and will be hosting weekend clinics, only for back to school immunizations, at two locations.
All students are required to receive the Tdap booster before entering 7th grade. Children may receive the Tdap booster as early as age 11. Vaccines are free of charge for children through age 18.
