Will your child be ready to start school again in the fall?

State law requires children to be immunized against certain vaccine-preventable diseases to attend school in Texas.

Frisco ISD will partner with Passport Health/North Texas Flu Shots to help families stay up to date on these requirements in advance of the 2013-2014 school year.

The requirements are most likely to affect your child if he or she is entering kindergarten or seventh grade, though students entering other grade levels may be impacted as well.

A children’s vaccination clinic will be held on Tuesday, April 23 from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Student Opportunity Center, 6928 Maple Street.

Blue Cross Blue Shield, United HealthCare and Aetna PPO plans will be accepted. Families must bring a photo copy of their insurance card and the driver’s license of the insured individual.

Cash or checks made out to North Texas Flu Shots will also be accepted.

The following vaccines will be available, at the price listed below for those without insurance.

  • Diphtheria/Tetanus/Pertussis (TDap) – $65
  • Polio – $80
  • Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) – $105
  • Meningococcal – $115
  • Hepatitis A – $70
  • Hepatitis B – $70
  • Varicella (Chickenpox) – $130

A parent or guardian must accompany each student. Please bring your child’s vaccine record with you.

If you have questions regarding required vaccines for the 2013-2014 school year, please contact your school nurse.
