HOUSTON – Feb. 13, 2019 – As a public service to the Spring community, Spring ISD has scheduled mobile immunization clinics to set up at schools across the district and offer vaccinations free-of-charge to children in our community.
“You may have heard in the news of some isolated cases of mumps and measles in Harris County and the Houston area, as well as across the nation,” said Jeanne Parker, Spring ISD director of nursing and health services. “There is evidence that immunizations protect children from serious illness and complications of vaccine-preventable diseases.”
Parker said this is an ideal opportunity for parents to make sure their child’s immunizations are up-to-date. She is also asking that people share this information with their neighbors and friends who may have children who are not yet school-aged.
Following is the mobile immunization van schedule for February. Parents are invited to follow the schedule that is most convenient. The parent or guardian must be present in order for the child to receive immunizations and should their child have an immunization record, they are asked to please bring it to the visit.
