It may be summer, but it’s time to make sure children are vaccinated for the upcoming school year.

Oklahoma Caring vans provide all vaccinations required by state law for enrollment in school or childcare facilities at no cost for children aged six weeks to 18 years old and are uninsured, eligible for Medicaid or American Indian.

A Caring Van will be open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 25 at the Sand Springs Enrollment Center at 104 W. 4th Street.

Immunizations are available on a first come, first served basis and parents must be present to provide current shot records and complete paperwork.

All children are required to be current on their immunizations prior to child care or school entry. Immunization records are necessary for children entering Pre-K or Kindergarten to enroll.

To find a full schedule of clinics, visit oklahomacaringfoundation.org or text TULSAVAN to 33633.
