DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - You don’t have to wait to get your kids immunized for the upcoming school year, and Dallas County Health and Human Services is hoping that you won’t.
DCHHS is encouraging parents to beat the back-to-school rush and bring their children to one of five weekday clinics. DCHHS clinics will also provide the state required meningitis for college students.
“We know from previous years the lines are much longer as we get closer to school starting,” said Zachary Thompson, DCHHS director. “That’s why we’re encouraging parents to bring their children in now for their vaccinations.”
The clinics are open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the following locations:
- 2377 N. Stemmons Frwy. Room 159 in Dallas
- 3312 N. Buckner Blvd. Suite 200 in Dallas
- 1113 E. Jefferson Blvd. Suite 200 in Dallas
- 440 S. Nursery Rd. in Irving
- 2774 Valwood Pkwy. in Farmers Branch
No appointment is needed.
Immunizations cost $10 for the first visit and $5 for returning patients. Click here for more information about the clinics and the vaccinations.
