The Florida Department of Health in Okaloosa County urges parents and guardians to review their children's immunization records and start getting required vaccinations now.

To comply with requirements, parents and guardians of students going into kindergarten and seventh grades should make vaccination plans in time for the first day of class and avoid delays.

Pediatricians, primary care and family doctors can typically provide vaccinations to children. Parents should call to verify that their children’s medical provider has the vaccines available.

Parents can also schedule an appointment for back-to-school vaccinations at DOH-Okaloosa.

There is no cost for required vaccinations for children up to 19 years old. Call 833-9246 to make an appointment.
