Care Van Offers Free Immunizations To Texans Can Academy - Garland High School Students

Care Van Offers Free Immunizations To Texans Can Academy – Garland High School Students

January 10, 2019

Care Vans recently visited the Texans Can Academy – Garland campus to offer free immunizations to 80 high school students. The health care professionals also provided free health screenings such as blood pressure checks, body fat and strength tests while at the schools.

The Care Van Program provides immunizations to uninsured and medically underserved children through its current fleet of 10 specially customized vans. Providing non-traditional services, the program is able to complement traditional clinics by visiting schools and other organizations in the communities where at-risk families live and work. The program is coordinated through the Caring for Children Foundation of Texas, Inc., and with thanks to lead sponsor Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas.

Immunizing children is one of the most direct, simple and least expensive ways to build healthier futures for families in Texas. Students in need of immunizations will be able to receive the medical help they need to keep them healthy throughout the school year. Students who have less of a risk to disease and illness will be able to participate and attend school more regularly.
