AVOID THE LINES...Prepare for Back-to-School Now!

Collier: AVOID THE LINES... Is your child going into Pre-k, Kindergarten or 7th grade this fall? Does your child have all of his/her required school immunizations in order to start school in the fall? The 2014-2015 school year is fast approaching. To avoid the lines and extended waiting periods, we encourage you to visit your local health department or private healthcare provider as soon as possible. Please don’t forget to bring your child’s DOH 680 immunization record form with you.

Vaccines are free for all children, birth through 18 years of age. No appointments are needed at the Florida Department of Health in Collier County (DOH-Collier). Additional information can be obtained by calling (239) 252-8595 or (239) 252-8555. You can also visit the DOH-Collier web site at http://www.collierhealthdept.org/ for more information. DOH-Collier offers immunizations at two locations:
