HOUSTON – Aug.20, 2020 – Spring ISD is joining with Care Van, a program of The Caring Foundation of Texas, to offer free immunizations to students from 9 a.m. to noon on Monday, Sept. 14 at the Spring ISD Community Engagement Center, 17125 Ella Blvd. The event, which will require appointments, offers parents and guardians a chance to make sure their children’s required immunizations are complete and up-to-date, at no cost to families.
“We are excited to again be partnering with The Caring Foundation of Texas to bring this important event to our Spring ISD families,” said Director of Parent Engagement Tranita Carroll. “It’s a great opportunity to make sure our students have all the immunizations they need, and we’re happy to help make them available at no cost.”
Due to COVID-19, additional health and safety measures will be in place this year to protect families, clinic staff and volunteers, and the number of available doses will be limited. For this reason, parents and guardians must register ahead of time. To register your child for an immunization appointment on Sept. 14, 2020, contact the Family Engagement department at 281-891-6685.
Participating families should bring their children’s immunization shot records and make sure that everyone over two years of age has a mask covering their mouth and nose. Clinic staff may also perform a brief screening and temperature check to ensure students are well enough to receive their shots.
Participating students will receive a free backpack donated by Community Health Choice.
