Saturday is the last day that Orange County Public School kids will be able to get required immunizations for free at rotating clinics in the district. 

The Department of Health has been holding vaccination clinics for school kids before the start of the year. 

Anyone in kindergartner through 7th grade is eligible. The last free clinic is being held at the OCPS Academic Center for Excellence from 8 am until 12 pm on Saturday. 

No appointment is needed, but a parent or guardian with a valid ID must be present on site throughout the process and must submit signed consent forms. 

Families should bring their child’s most recent health history including a record of shots along with their child’s birth certificate, passport or other government-issued ID. 

COVID-19 vaccines are not available.
