Students must be registered with the THC and have a scheduled appointment before receiving services.
A parent or guardian must sign a consent form for a student, for services such as:

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 ensure kids are up to date 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 THC anytime to make an appointment, and may be seen promptly if a provider is available.
