For the first time, Oklahoma City Public Schools will offer mobile immunizations at selected schools through July 24.

The district is teaming with Oklahoma Caring Foundation and Oklahoma City County Health Department to bring Caring Van clinics to seven sites so students can catch up on their shots before school starts Aug. 4. The immunizations began Monday at John Marshall Mid-High School.

“Students must have current immunizations to start school and we have thousands of children in the district who need updated vaccinations,” said Terri Bell, the district’s director of student support services. “In the past we have had students who miss the start of school to get their needed shots.”

Students under the age of 18 are eligible for immunizations and must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

Parents are encouraged to bring current immunization records, officials said.

Mobile immunizations will be offered to Oklahoma City school district students from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the parking lots of the following schools:

Tuesday, Douglass Mid-High, 900 Martin Luther King.

Wednesday, U.S. Grant High, 5016 S Pennsylvania.

Thursday, Oklahoma Centennial Mid-High, 1301 NE 101.

Monday, Star Spencer High, 3001 N Spencer.

July 22, Capitol Hill High, 500 SW 36.

July 23, Northwest Classen High, 2801 NW 27.

July 24, Southeast High, 5401 Shields Blvd.

Spanish translators will be available at Grant, Capitol Hill, Northwest Classen and Southeast locations.
