Meningitis Immunization Booster
Dear Parent or Guardian,
If your Senior is getting ready to go to college or another institution of higher learning and will be needing a Meningitis booster be sure to contact your students Primary Care Provider first about updating vaccine records and to verify if vaccines are available through your child's physician.
If your students Primary Care Provider does not give vaccines feel free to contact Parker County Hospital District at 817-341-2520 for immunization times and days. Be sure to bring a current copy of your students immunization record in order to have your child vaccinated.
Immunization consent forms in English and Spanish are linked below.
Feel free to contact me in the clinic if you have any questions at 817-598-2860.. We will be glad to update your child's school immunization record if you will send us a copy.

Health Notes From the Clinic:
Could your phone make you sick?
The answer is yes. Did you know that centralhealth.com reports that cell phones can carry as many germs or more than a bathroom door handle or toilet seat. Just one phone can harbor thousands of colonies of germs and bacteria.
Have you ever thought that we frequently wash our hands but how often do we clean our phone with an antimicrobial cleaner?
Microorganisms such as coliform, found on phones and tablets have been linked to causing the flu, pink eye, diarrhea and acne.
Try to minimize the number of times you touch your phone or tablet, and then touch your face or eyes.
Alcohol can remove up to 100 percent of germs from a surface. Try going hands free when you can by using blue tooth!
