The Immunization Clinic is in Building 682 and is open the following hours - Mondays, 7:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.; Tuesdays and Thursdays, 7:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.; Wednesdays 7:30 a.m. - noon; and Fridays, 7:30 a.m. - noon and 1 - 2:30 p.m. on a walk-in bases. A parent must accompany children under 18.
" Parents are encouraged to bring their children's immunization records, TRICARE cards, military IDs, medical cards, and whatever form your school wants the staff to fill out (part of the school registration packet).
" Dress children in shorts and t-shirts for physicals, and please, bring only the child with an appointment.
" If a TB skin test is done Aug. 7th, remember that the child must come back to have it read and entered into the record by Tuesday, Aug. 10th at the latest.
