Everyone is encouraged to visit their physician or medical provider for immunizations if possible. The Florida Department of Health immunization clinics are available to those without a medical provider and to accommodate those who may not have been able to get an appointment with their provider in time for school.
Immunization and physical requirements can vary depending on the grade a child is going into, or if they are new to the Palm Beach County School System. The Florida Department of Health in Palm Beach County currently has a website set up to concisely break down school immunization needs.
