The Garfield Teen Health Center requests to see school records so that they can work with Garfield and Nova staff and teachers to improve student learning. By signing the FERPA forms, this gives the Teen Health Center staff permission to see school records to help facilitate care to help your student succeed in school.

Students are seen by appointment only.
As part of the continued effort to keep Garfield and Nova students safe and healthy, we work closely with the school nurse and parents to make sure that kids are current with their vaccinations.
Students need to have a full parental consent and a parent-signed Vaccine Informational Sheet in order to receive any vaccination.
Students can visit the Teen Health Center anytime to make an appointment, and if we’re not busy, you can get it right away.
Here are the links to other immunizations that are available from the Teen Health Center. Vaccines require a full parental consent. You can print and sign the form below for the vaccines needed or e-mail us (see link below) and we can contact you via DocuSign secure messaging to obtain your consent
