Get Ready for Back to School with CommUnityCare Health Centers

In honor of National Health Center Week, CommUnityCare Health Centers is excited to host three back-to-school events to prepare Central Texas children for the upcoming school year.

National Health Center Week (August 4th – 10th) serves as an opportunity to showcase the dedication and efforts of Community Health Centers nationwide that diligently work to enhance health outcomes and reduce health disparities. This year’s National Health Center Week theme focuses on empowering communities by connecting them with health centers. 

As Central Texas’ largest nonprofit health center, we ask you to join us at one of our three back-to-school events where we will offer FREE children’s immunizations, backpacks, school supplies, paletas, community resources, plus more! These events are for children 3-18 years of age. 

Appointments are limited and registration is REQUIRED for both immunizations and backpacks. Before registering, please review our FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS – FAQs ENGLISH | FAQs SPANISH
