Back-2-School Health Clinic

ABOUT US

iStock-468284262.jpg

Project LINK, Inc is the administrative arm of the Back-to-School Coalition of Hillsborough County. The Coalition consists of medical collaboratives that include BayCare, USF Health, Tampa General Hospital, Florida Dept of Health- Hillsborough, South University, University of Tampa Nursing,, Florida Chapter of American Academy of Pediatrics, and Hillsborough County Public Schools health services.

 

Our focus is to ensure school-aged children are provided with shot records transfers, routine vaccinations and/or school physicals to meet enrollment requirements for Hillsborough County Public or charter Schools.

Our clinics are held annually during the summer and families are required to register in advance. To be eligible to attend a Back-2-School Health Clinic, a child must meet the following requirements:

  • Must be new to Hillsborough County Public or Charter Schools.

  • Must be uninsured, under-insured or have Medicaid coverage; No Private Insurance.

  • Enrolling in the 7th grade this year and need a routine immunization booster shot. (T-Dap)

  • Enrolling in Kindergarten this year, and must be 5 years or older on or before September 1, 2024.


Please note, if your child attended a Hillsborough County Public or Charter School last year, he/she DOES NOT require another school physical this academic year for enrollment. Hillsborough County School District only requires 1 physical during a child’s K – 12 tenure. Please see the child's primary care physician for an annual check-up. 

If your child requires an Immunization or Immunization Record Transfer/Update, You MUST upload a copy of the immunization record during registration and bring a hard copy of his/her shot records with you, at the time of appointment.  NO EXCEPTIONS!

If your child is transferring from a private school or coming from another State or Country and his/her immunization is up to date, but requires Immunization records transferred to a Florida Form DH-680, you must bring his/her current shot records with you to process the transfer. You can also contact the Florida Department of Health (813) 307-8000 for this service. 
 

In light of the post COVID-19 concerns and potentially new contagious virus spreading throughout the country, The Back to School Coalition of Hillsborough County is continuing its preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19 or any other virus during the Back-2-School Health Clinics.


To protect the health of patients and staff, we are limiting the number of Immunizations and School Physicals offered, in addition to restricting the attendance to only the parent(s) or guardian of the child(ren)receiving medical services.
