Escambia County Back To School Immunization Information

August 3, 2013

The Escambia County School District is reminding parents that students need to be up-to-date on their immunizations before the first day of school.

Before attending school in Florida, students enrolling in kindergarten through 12th grade are required to be current on all their immunizations. In addition, seventh grade students are required to have a Tdap booster vaccine before starting school on August 19.

Students who have medical insurance that will cover vaccinations should see their private provider, according to the school district.

Students who do not have health insurance coverage for immunizations may receive free vaccinations at the Escambia County Health Department at one of the locations listed below. Vaccinations are by appointment only.

  • 1295 W. Fairfield Drive, (850) 595-6554
  • 8390 North Palafox Street, (850) 484-5151

For additional information or to schedule an appointment, contact the Escambia County Health Department at one of the listed numbers.
