The first day of school is just around the corner and school districts have been holding several immunization clinics for students.
Today LISD held their last immunization clinic.
This year the state has mandated that all kindergarten and seventh grade students receive additional immunizations.
According to LISD’s head nurse, there’s need in the community for students to receive the immunizations.
And if the student doesn’t have all their shots in order then the student can’t attend school.

„Either the student has all the immunization or that the parent has filed paperwork for exemption through the state.”
The health department has also been holding immunization clinics.
They have a limit of two hundred vaccines a day and they had already reached today’s limit by seven this morning.
