The San Bernardino City Unified School District (SBCUSD) is committed to student health and has scheduled 10 free student immunization clinics starting in July and running through September.
Scheduled to take place starting July 27, the free student immunization clinics will be available to all enrolled students with Medi-Cal and those without insurance.
Colleen Williams, Director of Student Wellness and Support Services, encourages parents and guardians to take advantage of this opportunity to bring their children up to date on their immunizations in time for the start of the new academic year, which begins on Monday, July 31. The free student immunization clinics offer a convenient and accessible solution for families to ensure their children are protected from vaccine-preventable diseases, Williams said.
“Immunizations are a fundamental aspect of preventive healthcare, helping protect against a range of infectious diseases that can disrupt the learning process and jeopardize the overall health of our students,” Williams said. “By offering free student immunization clinics, we are taking proactive measures to prevent the spread of infectious diseases within our school community and ensuring a healthy learning environment for all.”
The immunization clinics will be staffed by qualified healthcare professionals and medical staff from San Bernardino County and the SAC Health System, with expertise in administering vaccines to children and adolescents.
