Back to School Immunizations & Sports Physicals

Walk-In Wednesdays for Back to School Immunizations

You might feel like summer vacation just started, but Yavapai County Community Health Services (YCCHS) is urging parents to start thinking about back-to-school vaccinations now.  Beginning June 5th, YCCHS has arranged “Walk-In Wednesdays” for parents to bring their children in for back-to-school shots at their public health locations.  The last two weeks of July before school begins, the walk-in schedule expands to offer a one-stop shop with sports physicals offered at the same time.

Making sure children receive their vaccinations on time is very important.   It’s important for kids to be healthy and ready for school and for the other kids to be protected, too.  Parents will need to bring their children's shot records, and check with their doctor to make sure the records are up to date. 

In Arizona, as in most states, children starting kindergarten are required to have been immunized for Hepatitis B, DTaP (whooping cough), IPV (polio), MMR (measles, mumps and rubella), and Varicella (chicken pox). 

Children, age 11 and older, who are entering sixth and seventh grades, will be required to have Tdap (Tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis) and Meningococcal vaccines for the start of the school year.

For uninsured children, there is an administration fee of $20 per child receiving vaccines. The administration fees can be waived under certain circumstances. YCCHS will bill for insurance.  Parental consent is required to administer the shots to children under the age of 18.

To schedule immunization appointments outside of the walk-in dates set, call 771-3122.  Appointments for sports physicals can be made through the Community Health Center of Yavapai at 583-1000.
