August is National Immunization Awareness Month
Back-to-school season is here. It's time for parents to gather supplies and backpacks. It's also the perfect time to make sure kids are up to date on their vaccines. The Caring for Children foundation and our many community partners help Texas families do just that! Our Care Van® Program helps immunize thousands of kids in time to start the new school year. Through mobile outreach, Care Vans participate in several back-to-school events to provide childhood immunizations, offer vaccine education to families and promote healthy living.
We also collaborate with several independent school districts to provide immunizations at select school registration days or special health events. For private school district events listed, please contact schools directly for more details. To view a schedule of Care Van outreach clinics or event dates in your community, visit our In Your Neighborhood page.
One of the most important things you can do as a parent or guardian is to make sure children of all ages receive all their vaccinations on time, ensuring a child's long-term health – as well as the health of friends, classmates and others in your community. Caring for Children Foundation of Texas and its Care Van Program is working to improve the health of Texas, one child at a time!
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas supports the efforts of the foundation and the Care Van Program, serving as the statewide sponsor for more than 20 years.
