DOH to Provide Free Immunizations to Students K-12

In support of children in the territory who are preparing to go back to school and in recognition of National Immunization Month, the Department of Health (DOH) will be providing free immunizations for the uninsured and Medicaid recipients to all children in K-12.
St. Croix – from 1-5 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 20, at Sunny Isle Shopping Center.
St. Thomas/St. John – from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 27, at Walgreens Pharmacy.
In addition to the free immunizations, DOH will provide clearance slips and check immunization records in order to clear school registrations (free of charge). Appointments will be scheduled as needed. For those families with insurance, bring your insurance cards.
Free back-to-school giveaways will be available for all the children that receive services, to include book bags, umbrellas, lunch kits, binders, sketchpads, crayons, pencils, hand sanitizers and more.

Unlike many news organizations, we haven't put up a paywall - we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. Our sites are more popular than ever, but advertising revenues are falling - so you can see why we could use your help. Our independent journalism costs time, money and hard work to keep you informed, but we do it because we believe that it matters. If everybody who appreciates our reporting efforts were to help fund it for as little as $1, our future would be much more secure. Thanks in advance for your support!
