The Orange County health department gave 2,530 school vaccines to more than 1,000 clients between ages 2 months and 18 years during a Back to School Immunization event during the last week of July.

If your child still needs school-required vaccines and/or the 680 form, call your health provider or the health department at (407) 858-1444 to make an appointment.
