The Oklahoma Caring Vans provide all immunizations required by Oklahoma law for enrollment in schools or child care facilities. Services are provided at no charge to children, aged six weeks through 18 years, who qualify; this includes children who are uninsured, Medicaid eligible or American Indian.
Services are available:

All children are required to be current on their immunizations prior to child care or school entry. Immunization records are necessary for children entering Pre-K or kindergarten to enroll.
