For Hometown News

The Florida Department of Health in Volusia County encourages parents to get their school aged children vaccinated before the semester starts.

Parents are encouraged to seek the vaccinations from their private doctors as well as community health centers. Parents should seek services through their medical providers, particularly those patients who have private insurance or are enrolled in the Healthy Kids Program and Medikids provided by the Florida KidCare program.

The Florida Department of Health and Department of Education require all children entering the seventh grade to have a Tdap booster (adult strength tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis) vaccine. Children entering kindergarten are required to be immunized. A Florida certification of immunization must be presented before the children can begin school.

Children may be vaccinated by private providers or at Family Health Source Medical Centers including:
