Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) continues to partner with the Florida Department of Health (DOH) and the University of Miami Health System (UHealth) Pediatric Mobile Clinic to offer vaccines and testing at dozens of schools throughout the District.
The UHealth Pediatric Mobile Clinic sites will offer the COVID-19 vaccine as well as the flu vaccine and COVID-19 testing. COVID-19 vaccine booster shots will also be available to eligible students.
UHealth will also be providing the mandatory school-required vaccines for the 2022-2023 school year, for students entering kindergarten and 7th grade in the fall, and for any student that is missing a school-age vaccine. Parents can avoid the summer rush by getting their children vaccinated during the school day.
Attached are fliers in English, Spanish and Haitian-Creole listing the vaccination locations, dates and times throughout May that are available to the community.
To be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine, students MUST be at least five years old on the day they are receiving it. They must also have a completed COVID-19 vaccine screening and consent form, which will be available at the sites. Walk-ups are welcome.
Through the District’s partnership with DOH, the COVID-19 pediatric vaccine also will be offered to students at select school sites. Eligible students will be contacted by staff from their school. Parents of children receiving the vaccine at schools that partnered with DOH do not need to be present, but they must complete and return the vaccine screening and consent form to their child’s school.
