Changes made to district immunization clinic schedule

Unforeseen circumstances have resulted in a few changes to a schedule for immunization clinics in the district. Mission CISD traditionally arranges to host these clinics to help parents as they prepare to register their children for school.

All children must have all the necessary protection against the following diseases before the child can attend school: diphtheria, polio, measles, rubella, mumps, Hib, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis A, and varicella. All are required before entering pre-k and returning students must complete any immunizations that are due or pending before registration. The student’s immunization records must be available at the time of registration to avoid any delays in admitting their children.

The updated schedule for immunization clinics hosted by Mission CISD is listed below:

August 1, 8:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m., Alton Elementary

August 1, 8:30 a.m.-3:00 p.m., Castro Elementary
