Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas is teaming up with Spring ISD to offer free immunizations to students ahead of the 2020-21 school year Aug. 8.

According to a July 28 news release, the event will take place from 9 a.m.-noon at the SISD Community Engagement Center, located at 17125 Ella Blvd., Houston. Appointments will be required and can be made by calling the SISD Family and Community Engagement department at 281-891-6685.


"We are excited to be partnering with Blue Cross Blue Shield to bring this important event to our Spring ISD families," said Tranita Carroll, director of SISD's Family and Community Engagement department, in a statement. "It's a great opportunity to make sure our students have all the immunizations they need, and we're happy to help make them available at no cost."

On the day of the clinic, families with appointments are asked to bring their children's immunization shot records, arrive on time and make sure everyone over the age of 2 is wearing a mask. Students who participate in the clinic will also receive a free backpack, and those who are unable to attend the Aug. 8 clinic will have another opportunity to receive free immunizations in September.
