SIU holds back-to-school clinics
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WICS) —
The start of school is right around the corner.
Now parents are checking off things from their back-to-school list.
One of those items is a back to school exam.
All students need to get a physical and be up to date on their vaccinations.
The Springfield School District will send kids home if they don't have them within 10 days.
SIU is holding Back-to-School Clinics.
"The school district is here, as well as the Health Department," Dr. Tracy Milbrandt said, "so we're able to track down all shots in case they're not necessarily from our office."
"They're also able to get everything turned into the school personnel as well so really they can leave here without having to take anything to school with them."
Health officials say the Back-to-School Clinic helps ensure all children meet their requirements.
But the exam won't be as in depth as your primary care physician.
