Preventive and emergency school-based health services are provided to public school children in grades kindergarten (K) through twelve (12).
Services are provided in accordance with a local School Health Services Plan jointly developed by the Florida Department of Health in Orange County, Orange County School District and Orange County School Health Advisory Committee.
School-based health services are an important component of the public health system and help to assure that Florida's students are healthy, in the classroom, and ready to learn.
School nurses enhance health within the school and community by providing health appraisals, nursing assessments, nutrition assessments, preventive dental services, periodic health screenings, health counseling, referral and follow-up of suspected or confirmed health problems, emergency health services, and promoting activities to reduce risk-taking behaviors .
School nurses also collaborate with parents, teachers, social workers, and other health care providers to develop care plans, identify available health resources, and identify the need for health referrals to address specific health problems discovered through mandated health screenings and assessments.

Due to the high demand for immunization services, no appointments are given. Immunization services are provided on a walk-in basis only. The number of tickets issued is determined by daily staffing levels. If the maximum daily number of tickets are issued prior to 2:00pm no further tickets will be issued. Tickets will continue to be issued until 2:00pm if the maximum number of tickets has not been issued. Seating in the immunization clinic is limited therefore we ask that only the client(s) receiving immunizations and necessary adults accompanying them visit the clinic.Thank you for your cooperation.

Parents are encouraged to check their student's shot records throughout the school year so they do not have to wait until July or August to have them immunized. The 7th grade shot can be given as early as 7 years old if there have been 5 years since the last DTAP.
