School Immunizations Available to Students in Manhattan and Surrounding Areas, at MedRite Urgent Care
Manhattan school systems require school immunizations for all children prior to enrollment. This is because many contagious diseases can spread among children while they’re at school, infecting one another as well as staff and administration. In order to avoid the spread of severe and even deadly diseases, school immunizations must be administered to children before they are legally allowed to attend school, and exceptions are made only in extremely rare cases.
Some of the diseases school immunizations are intended to eradicate include chickenpox, measles, mumps, rubella, polio, hepatitis B, and more. However, scheduling and transporting children to doctors’ appointments for all of their vaccinations may be difficult for busy parents to manage. That’s why MedRite Urgent Care provides convenient immunizations to children in Manhattan and surrounding areas. All of our locations are staffed with board-certified physicians, and make it easy to bring your children in by never requiring appointments and offering:
