The immunization clinic is open through Sept. 11.

Whether students are headed back to the classroom or taking classes online, they still need their annual immunizations.

Tarrant County Public Health and the Immunization Collaboration of Tarrant County are offering immunizations for children inside Ridgmar Mall, 1888 Green Oaks Blvd., on the main level, near the food court.

To ensure social distancing, the vaccination location has been designed to keep families 6 feet apart from other families getting shots.

The program runs through Sept. 11. Immunizations are available for children on Medicaid and CHIP as well as children who are underinsured or uninsured. Payment is accepted by cash, check or Medicaid/CHIP only. Preregister for shots.

“It’s really important to keep up to date on childhood vaccinations, whether you decide to do virtual or in-class learning this fall,” said Tarrant County Public Health Director Vinny Taneja. “We can’t let our guard down on preventable diseases, though COVID-19 is on all our minds.”

Do not go to the immunization event if you or your child have any of the symptoms associated with the COVID-19 virus within the last 24 hours or if you or your child have tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days. COVID-19 symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, fatigue, loss of taste or smell and shortness of breath.

Face coverings are required at the event. Staff and volunteers will check temperature, assist with social distancing and regularly disinfect all areas.
