Project LINK's Back to School Health Clinics provides Medicaid or uninsured families with access to NO COST routine immunizations, school physicals, and immunization records transfers. Our goal is to help ensure Hillsborough County Public and Charter School students are healthy and ready for the academic year ahead.

 

Our dedicated team, consisting of highly trained healthcare experts, is fully committed to providing comprehensive and compassionate medical care. We also place a strong emphasis on educating families about the vital importance of preventative healthcare measures.

To ensure easy access to the medical services necessary for enrollment in Hillsborough County Schools, we have set up 7 pop-up clinics across the county.
