The Oklahoma Caring Foundation Facebook pageOklahoma Caring Van
MUSKOGEE, Okla. - Muskogee Public Schools in partnership with The Oklahoma Caring Foundation, Inc. will welcome The Oklahoma Caring Van to sites across the district November 30 through December 2, 2021.
The Oklahoma Caring Van Program delivers immunizations to protect children and adolescents from dangerous illnesses at no cost to their families. The Oklahoma Caring Van Program is uniquely designed to eliminate barriers that commonly prevent children from receiving on-time, age-appropriate immunizations in traditional health care settings.
The Oklahoma Caring Van will be providing flu vaccines at nine locations over the three days. Students must have a completed, in its entirety, and signed by a parent or guardian consent and authorization form. The completed form should be returned only by those families that want their student to receive an Influenza (flu) shot.

COVID-19 vaccines will not be administered on these days.
