DOH-Sarasota Announces Extended Clinic Hours for Back-to-School Immunizations



As Sarasota County schools prepare to come back in session next Monday, the Florida Department of Health in Sarasota County (DOH-Sarasota) is reminding parents that updated vaccines are required for kindergarten and 7th grade in all Florida schools. A completed DH 680 form is required for registration in Sarasota County public schools. The form is available through a pediatrician and at DOH-Sarasota. Students without required immunizations will be sent home from public schools on the first day of school. In addition, they will not be able to ride the bus or participate in sports, band or other extracurricular activities until the school has the DH 680 form showing they have received the required immunizations.

The immunization Clinic in the Sarasota and North Port clinics will be open 8am to 4:30pm, Monday–Friday, through August 13. Additionally, the Florida Department of Health in Sarasota County will be offering extended hours in the North Port and Sarasota Immunizations clinics for students needing back-to-school shots. The Sarasota Immunization clinic located at 2200 Ringling Blvd. will remain open until 7pm August 7 and 6:30pm August 8. The North Port Immunization clinic located at 6950 Outreach Way will remain open until 6:30pm August 8.
