It won’t be long before back to school time is here. Thousands of Austin area students need one or more vaccines before starting the new school year, and with recent changes in the state’s immunization requirements for college students, that number may be even higher.
With that in mind, the Austin/Travis County Health and Human Services Department’s Shots for Tots and Big Shots Program wants to remind you that now is the best time to get needed vaccines.
Many students don’t have a doctor or insurance. Shots for Tots and Big Shots offer immunizations on a daily basis at locations in north and south Austin. To make an appointment, call 512-972-5520.
There is a fee for each vaccine administered. However, services will not be denied due to inability to pay. There is no charge for children with Medicaid.
The clinics are located at:
- Far South Health Center
405 West Stassney
Austin, TX 78745
- St. John Community Center
7500 Blessing Avenue
Austin, TX 78752
