Tampa, Fla. – (July 17, 2019) – It’s an exciting time of year as students get ready to go back to school. Hillsborough County Public Schools and our health partners want to make sure students are healthy and meet all of the requirements needed before class begins in less than a month. Students in Kindergarten through 12th grade, along with their families, are invited to attend a Back to School Health Fair for free physicals, immunizations, school supplies and more.

Hillsborough County Public Schools, in partnership with the Back to School Coalition of Hillsborough County and Project LINK, are providing the health fairs in areas throughout the county to give families easier access to these services.

Families must pre-register to attend.
