    Maintaining adequate immunization rates in schools is critical to preventing disease outbreaks and ensuring the health of Texas children.

But wait...what about COVID-19?

Did you delay your child's vaccines due to COVID-19?

  • Vaccinating your kids keeps them safe & healthy. If you delayed vaccines during COVID-19, it’s time to catch up for school.

    Our public healthcare workers and clinics are strained due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, we strongly encourage you to do your part to help. Please consider Vaccinating  yourself and your household.  Find a Texas Vaccines for Children’s provider here Texas Vaccines for Children.

*Attention Parents of INCOMING 7th GRADERS

  • Texas state law requires students attending school to be immunized against certain vaccine-preventable diseases. 

    All students entering 7th grade at Mance Park Middle School are required to have additional immunizations for admission to school including meningococcal and whooping cough shots.  An HPV vaccination and an annual flu shot also keep illness, even cancer, away. We encourage you to get your child vaccinated early so as to avoid the end-of-summer vaccination rush. Getting your child vaccinated protects your child’s health and that of the community.

    Protect your kids – vaccinate them.
