Florida Department of Health in Brevard Reminds Residents of the Importance of Back to School Vaccinations

Full Story
The Florida Department of Health in Brevard encourages parents to have their children immunized as the new school year approaches. Local county health departments statewide are providing free immunization services for eligible children who are entering school for the first time and those who are returning to class in the upcoming school year. Parents of kindergartners and 7th graders are encouraged to review their children’s immunization record to ensure they are ready for the upcoming school year. Students entering college are also encouraged to ensure their immunizations are up to date.

To better serve Brevard County residents, vaccinations will be available, with no appointment necessary, at the drive-through site at 2555 Judge Fran Jamieson Way in Viera. Visit the COVID-19 Vaccination event page listed below for information about expanded hours.
