Free clinics to check immunizations off your back-to-school list

Crossposted from Public Health Insider

It happens every summer – you blink once, and it’s already back-to-school season. Before that first day rolls around, make sure your child is fully up-to-date on vaccinations required for school so they can stay healthy, thriving, and ready to learn. This year, it’s easier than ever to get caught up on vaccines at one of many back-to-school clinics in south King County.

Where can my child get vaccines required for school?

Your child’s healthcare provider is always a good place to start. But if there are no appointments available or if you don’t have a provider, we’ve got options! Numerous walk-in clinics are on tap in the coming weeks, hosted by Stepping Stone Pediatrics, Seattle Children’s Hospital/Odessa Brown Clinic, and MultiCare. Find a Clinic in Seattle, Renton, Federal Way, or Auburn. Vaccines at these clinics are free and you don’t need insurance or proof of immigration status. You may be asked to provide insurance information, but you won’t be charged and no one will be turned away for lack of insurance. Read more.
