No-cost school physicals and immunizations

Parents of school-aged children can get no-cost school physicals at Florida Department of Health (DOH) locations in Volusia County. Students must be current on vaccinations to receive physicals at no cost. Child immunizations always are offered at no cost at DOH-Volusia locations.

Appointments are needed for school physicals but not for immunizations. Both services are available from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday through Friday at three DOH-Volusia locations:

  • Daytona Beach, 1845 Holsonback Drive
  • New Smyrna Beach: 717 W. Canal Street
  • Orange City: 775 Harley Strickland Blvd.

New and transferring students, kindergarten students, and those entering seventh grade must provide proof of immunizations to the school before children can receive a schedule or enter school on the first day of classes.

Parents are encouraged to bring shot records with them when requesting immunizations.

Classes resume in Volusia County Schools on Monday, August 14.
