Texas Vaccines for Children Program (TVFC)

Always remember to vaccinate your child on time

No one else can do it for you.  Protecting your child from childhood diseases by making sure vaccinations are on time is up to you.  If you’re not sure your child’s vaccines are up to date, call your doctor’s office or clinic to find out. 

You can get free or low-cost vaccines for your child through the Texas Vaccines for Children Program (TVFC).  Ask your doctor or clinic if they participate in the TVFC program.

For more information about the TVFC Program, about vaccines and childhood diseases, or if you do not have a doctor or clinic where your child can get vaccinations, call our office at (254)750-5410.  

Additional Information

FIRST TIME CLIENTS

Please bring a copy of your child’s shot record with you so we can assess any shots that may have been missed. Not doing so may result in repeated visits to your physician’s office or our clinic based on the requirements set by your child’s school/university or daycare.

Back to School

Remember, immunizations are required for students to attend school in the state of Texas.  Each school year we see an influx of clients beginning in July and increasing through the month of August. You can find school and daycare requirements on the DSHS website here.  If you need shots or shot records, don't wait until the last minute!

REMINDER: Our clinic only retains shot records for children and adults who have been to the immunization clinic here at the Health District. If your child is signed up for ImmTrac a shot record may be in the database. Please keep in mind, it is not a guarantee that a shot record will be found, nor can we guarantee the shot record is current.

August is a very busy month for our clinic and the wait time may be longer than usual.  Remember that we are a walk-in clinic and may close early if we reach capacity.

PHYSICALS

Please refer to your physician. We do not have an on-site physician who can see clients for physicals or other routine exams.

Pregnancy Testing

Please refer to our HIV/STD clinic for pregnancy testing.

BACKGROUND CHECKS / BLOOD WORK / DRUG TESTING

The Health District does not offer background checks, blood tests or drug tests.

Shot Records

The immunization clinic only holds shot records for clients we have vaccinated, or if the client is signed up in ImmTrac. If you or your child is signed up for ImmTrac, we may be able to find a copy of a shot record. The shot record is as only as accurate as what was reported by your treating physician.

Please keep in mind that ImmTrac records will only be found if the child or adult is signed up for ImmTrac. If you had an ImmTrac record as a child and you turned 19 before 2009, your ImmTrac record has been purged and you will need to sign up for ImmTrac as an adult. If you decided to sign up as an adult (and your ImmTrac record has been is purged) you may want provide us with a shot record to enter into ImmTrac. ImmTrac is a lifetime registry when you sign as an adult.

NOTE: We do not collect shot records from your physician’s office, nor are they reported to us for retention in any manner.   Our clinic may request shot records to be sent from your school or doctor so our clinic can administer the correct vaccinations.

SHOT RECORDS FOR AN ID

Any official shot record given by our immunizations clinic, ImmTrac, or your treating physician is a valid document to obtain your ID.
