Overview / About F.I.T.

  • FIT Logo If you lost your housing due to economic hardship, natural disaster, or other similar reason, and are living temporarily with friends or relatives, or in shelter, motel, vehicle, or campground; or on the street; in an abandoned building, then you are eligible to receive services provided under the McKinney-Vento Act.  The Families in Transition Program offered through Leon County Schools can help you connect with services to help you through this difficult time.

    Immunization Clinic Information

    Following is a list of locations for health services. It is recommended that students be referred to their own provider for physicals or immunization services.  If they don’t currently have a primary care provider, the community clinics listed below are an option. In order to request a sliding fee scale, parents would need to provide proof of income and they should ask when they call for an appointment to get each providers requirement for this request.

     

    Out-of-state immunization records can be dropped off to your local health department. There is a (5) business day turnaround. A health department representative will call you to pick up the new Florida Shot record once completed.
