Orange County Public Schools is offering a way for students to get their vaccinations up to date before the upcoming school year. 

In collaboration with the Florida Department of Heath in Orange County, the district is offering free vaccinations at the Ronald Blocker Educational Leadership Center. Children can also receive their Form 680, the Florida Certificate of Immunization. 

In order to be vaccinated, children must attend with an adult family member or legal guardian. If the parent or guardian cannot be present, a notarized permission form must be signed by the parent or guardian and presented before the child can receive immunizations. 

Immunizations will be given on a first-come, first served, basis. 

To avoid lines, parents are also encouraged to get their children vaccinated at their primary care doctors.
