Starting school can be complicated — especially for any family that has waited until the last minute to enroll a new student without the correct records or immunizations. To help avoid delays when school starts on Aug. 20, the Polk County Health Department is working with the Lake Wales Charter Schools and other partners to provide free back-to-school shots and physicals at a “Back To School Blast.” The event is set for 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, Aug. 11 at the Lake Wales Health Department, 835 W. Central Ave.
The Health Department will provide free immunizations and physicals on a first-come, first-served basis. A parent or guardian must accompany the child, and should bring the child’s current immunization record (blue or white form).
