Student Health Information

Texas state law requires students attending school to be immunized against certain vaccine-preventable diseases. We encourage parents to get their children vaccinated before the end-of-summer vaccination rush and before school starts. Students cannot go to school without the proper documentation for the required vaccines or a valid medical or conscientious exemption.
 
Frequently Asked Questions
 
Requirements for Schools:
Where can my child get the required immunizations?
In addition to receiving the required immunizations at your doctor's office, your child also may receive immunizations, including for the flu, by visiting Seton Hospital's Children’s Care-a-Van.  The state of the art mobile clinic visits Prairie Lea on Tuesdays parking on a pad especially built for it in front of the Prairie Lea Baptist Church. The church provides the space and utilities for the clinic as a community service.
