Texas state law requires students to be fully vaccinated against specified diseases by the first day of school, which in Dallas ISD is Monday, Aug. 19. That means now is the perfect time to avoid the long lines of the back-to-school rush at clinics and medical facilities across the city.
Students enrolling in Dallas ISD for the first time must provide proof of the required immunizations in the form of official records from a physician or health clinic.
Low-cost immunizations are available for eligible students at Dallas ISD’s Youth and Family Centers and at Dallas County’s health clinics. For information, visit this webpage or call 972-502-4190 for the location near you.
Parkland and Dr. Spot, the Mobile Pediatric Van, will be at the Linus D. Wright Dallas ISD Administration Building the week of Aug. 12 for vaccination outreach as parents enroll.
Additionally, free immunizations for schoolchildren will be available during the Dallas Mayor’s Back to School Fair, 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Friday, Aug. 2, at Fair Park.
