Students entering kindergarten and seventh grade can get their required immunizations, as well as the flu and COVID vaccine, at dozens of Miami-Dade schools.

Students in Miami-Dade County can get the school-required vaccines they need throughout the month of October.

The school district has partnered with the University of Miami Health System to offer the vaccinations — including flu shots — for students entering kindergarten and seventh grade.

Eligible students can also get COVID tests and vaccines. Students getting the COVID vaccine must be at least six months old on the day of receiving the shot.

Parents can either make an appointment by calling (305) 243-6407 or walk up at a location.

A PDF of the vaccination schedule with locations is available in English, Spanish, and Haitian Creole.
