SBHC at Schertz Elementary Immunization Clinic a Success

It's that time of year again! As families geared up for Back-to-School, many set health needs as a top priority.

Health services are provided through MHM School Based Health Centers that provide primary medical and dental care to school-age children and their younger siblings who live in the Schertz-Cibolo Universal City Independent School District (SCUCISD). The School Based Health Center at Schertz Elementary recently held a two-day Immunization Clinic for students and parents in the SCUISD, which was designed to correspond with school registration being held that same week.

At the conclusion of the two-day Immunization Clinic, a total of 56 children were immunized. As dreadful as vaccine shots may sound to the ears of a child, the children walked away with smiles on their faces doting takeaway pencils, toothbrushes and colorful Band-Aids. Parents left with enthusiasm knowing they could confidently tend to their remaining Back-to-School list as their child's health needs had been addressed.
