Lubbock Health Department To Partner With Frenship ISD
It's already time to start thinking about sending kids back to school and with that means school vaccinations and the option of having students get vaccinated against COVID-19.
The City of Lubbock Public Health Department announced on Thursday that the department will partner with Frenship ISD to offer school and COVID-19 vaccination clinics.
According to a press release from the City of Lubbock, the City of Lubbock Public Health Department will work with Frenship ISD to offer school vaccinations and to offer the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccination to students and their parents during the month of July.
The first clinic is today at Frenship High School from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Here are some other details you need to know about the clinics.
- Recipients of school vaccinations must be 4 years of age or older (Pre-K to college students) and uninsured or enrolled in Chip or Medicaid.
- School-Aged Vaccines: Dtap, MMR, VAR, IPV, Hepatitis A & B, MCV4 (Meningitis), HPV9 and MenB
- College Vaccines: MCV4 (Meningitis), HPV9 and Tdap
- Recipients of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccination must be 12 years of age or older and are eligible regardless of insurance status.
Each clinic will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the following locations:
- July 1 - Frenship High School
- July 22 - Frenship High School
Walk-ins are welcome. Recipients do not need to be enrolled in Frenship ISD to receive a vaccination.

We will probably see more of these types of clinics in the future for other districts and businesses in and around Lubbock.
