Immunizations are a safe, effective way to protect your child from getting measles, whooping cough, and many other serious vaccine preventable diseases.  We offer the immunizations required for school and child care.

Getting childhood immunizations at DOH-Sarasota:

Many immunizations are available at no cost to eligible children (through the federally funded Vaccines For Children program). We accept Medicaid, Florida Blue (excluding MyBlue), and Aetna. Children under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent, legal guardian, or relatives listed in Florida Statutes 743.0645. Adults must show a government-issued ID. In addition, parents of children coming for their first visit to our clinic must bring the child's birth certificate or passport.

We will do our best to see walk-ins for vaccines. However, it will depend on the slots available. Therefore, we encourage clients to call and make an appointment.

*IMPORTANT: Previous shot records are required.

Immunizations are Required for School and Child Care 

Children must be immunized in order to attend any Florida public school as well as any private school or child (day) care center. This includes children who are homeschooled. By the time a child starts school he/she should have already had a number of required immunizations. However, proof of updates, boosters, and series completion is required to enter Sarasota County Schools for the first time and to advance to some grade levels.

Need copies of shot records for school or child (day) care?

  1. Check with your child’s school or private doctor.
  2. Please ask them to fax the record to us: 941-526-1532.

If you are unable to have your child’s records faxed from their school or doctor:

  1. Please call our Immunizations clinic: 941-861-2784.
  2. Provide your child’s name and date of birth.
