Are the kids ready for school?

It’s almost time for the new school year to begin. For a lot of families, that means earlier bedtimes, a checklist of school supplies and the promise of a longer commute during rush hour.

Don’t forget the immunizations. Most local schools and school districts have a firm policy about making sure kids are up-to-date on their vaccines before they can return to school. University Health System clinics are preparing for the back-to-school rush and are accepting appointments.

We’ll be holding Back to School Health Stop events from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on two Fridays, August 12 and 19 at the Texas Diabetes Institute, 701 S. Zarzamora St..

And University Health System is partnering with the Northside Independent School District to provide vaccinations on a number of campuses throughout the month. You can find locations, times and dates here.

KSAT TV has a story about the Northside ISD partnership on their site.
