Clinics Vaccinate Kids, Provide Physicals, Before Start of School

Springfield school officials think a big public awareness push is paying off… and they expect far fewer students will be held out of classes this year for failing to have the required immunizations.


More than 90 students received full physicals Monday during special clinics set up at Washington and Jefferson Middle Schools… and more students got vaccinations only. A similar clinic will be held again today from 8am to 2pm at both schools.


District 186 has been warning parents for months to act more quickly, because of a tightened deadline for getting those shots.


At the two “balanced calendar” schools that opened last month, only one student is currently being held out of class for non-compliance.
