Leon County students can get free immunizations required for school at extended-hours clinics starting tonight, July 15. Florida Department of Health nurse Ann Waltz said she encourages parents to make appointments for the clinics, which run from 4-7 p.m. on Monday evening and again on Wednesday, July 24.
“We really are trying to target parents who, perhaps because of a work schedule, are not able to come in during regular 8-to-5 hours," she said.
Waltz said free immunizations are always available Monday through Friday at two health department locations. But the after-hours shots are available at only one location: the Roberts and Stevens Clinic at 1515 Old Bainbridge Road.
Immunization appointments can be made with the Florida Department of Health in Leon County by calling 850-606-8020.
