Items needed for an immunization visit
January 8, 2013:
All current Orange County students age 5 years and older should be fully immunized for the 2013-2014 school year by the end of the 2012-2013 school year. Parents please check your child’s immunization records now! To avoid long lines, please obtain any needed vaccinations prior to the end of the 2012-2013 school year.
Parents of students in grades 6th through 12th--please ensure that your child has already received their Tdap vaccine before the end of the 2012-2013 school term. If not, please check with your child's school to determine if and when the school nurse will be giving vaccinations.
Persons with Medicaid should receive vaccinations at their assigned healthcare provider’s office.
Seating in the immunization clinic is limited therefore we ask that only the client(s) receiving immunizations and necessary adults accompanying them visit the clinic. Thank you for your cooperation.
Clients needing immunization records faxed in: The Immunization clinic must receive faxed immunization records no later than 12 noon (Eastern Standard Time) in order to service a client on the same day. Please visit the medical records department on 1st floor to obtain immunization records via fax.
Parents are encouraged to check their student's shot records throughout the school year so they do not have to wait until July or August to have them immunized. The 7th grade shot can be given as early as 7 years old if there have been 5 years since the last DTAP.
Flu Prevention: Bureau of Immunization 2010-2011 Flu Survey:
The Florida Department of Health’s Bureau of Immunization (BOI) is gathering information about where customers received their flu shots in Florida. The BOI developed a short survey instrument and encourages us to promote the use of the online survey.
The data gathered from this survey will be used to better target public health efforts for immunization. The process will also help us to refine our information-gathering abilities. We are hoping to increase influenza vaccine coverage among Floridians, and your participation will be essential to identifying and targeting those groups in need of outreach.
If you have any questions regarding the survey or about the presentation of the collected data, please visit our web pages at www.ImmunizeFlorida.org.
