Blog: How to Register for an All for Them Clinic

Published: November 2, 2023

You just heard that your child’s school will be hosting a free All for Them vaccination clinic, and it’s perfect timing — your child needs vaccinations, including their HPV vaccine series, which will secure their protection against six types of cancer.

But how do you register for the clinic?

This registration guide will take you through the process of ensuring that your child will get the vaccinations they need to stay healthy both now and in the future. These instructions are for Aldine ISD, Goose Creek CISD, and Houston ISD clinics; Fort Worth ISD clinics will have online registration. Check back in the future for more information.

BEFORE YOUR SCHOOL’S CLINIC

More than a month before the clinic, some school districts will send postcards home to families whose campuses will be hosting All for Them clinics during the semester. You may also connect with an All for Them team member at an open house at the school, at carpool pick-up, or during a community festival.

The school hosting the clinic will send consent packets home with all students. You may also receive emails, text messages, phone calls, or other communications from your child’s school or district about the upcoming vaccination clinic.

If you do not receive a consent packet, contact your school nurse or the All for Them team at AllForThem@uth.tmc.edu or 866-255-1811.

Parents of middle schoolers can expect to see a blue envelope with a yellow backpack on it. Inside, you will find a letter about the upcoming clinic, instructions about how your child can participate, facts about the HPV vaccine, and consent forms to fill out and sign.

REGISTERING FOR THE CLINIC

Consent forms are different depending on which health care provider will be giving the immunizations at the clinic. Fill out all forms in blue or black pen — not pencil. Complete, sign, and date each form at the bottom of each page. Take the time to answer all questions carefully and completely, writing your initials (the first letter of your first name and the first letter of your last name) whenever necessary. Be sure to check yes or no for every question as required. A member of the All for Them team will reach out to you if forms are incomplete and may send those forms back home with your child so you can make the needed corrections.

Once you have completed the consent forms, return them to the school nurse before the deadline to ensure that your child will be able to participate. The deadline for completing and returning the consent forms is included on the envelope of the forms itself. You can also find the deadline on your school district’s Find a Clinic page on the All for Them website.

Important: Be sure to include a copy of all of your child’s immunization records with the completed consent forms. Your child’s records will be stamped with the immunizations they receive and returned home with your child on the day of the clinic.

If you complete and return the consent forms prior to the deadline, you do not have to attend the clinic. However, you are welcome to do so. A parent or legal guardian must be available by phone during the day of the clinic in case the health care provider has questions about your child’s medical history.

ALL-SCHOOL CLINICS

At different times throughout the year, All for Them organizes opportunities for all-school clinics at a common location within the school district. These clinics usually take place during school breaks, such as over summer or the holidays. No matter what school they attend, all eligible students are invited to participate. Often, siblings can also get any needed vaccines at the same clinic. Parents must make an appointment by calling the All for Them team at 866-255-1811 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. In some cases, walk-ins are welcome at the clinics, but spots are limited. The best way to ensure your child can participate is by making an appointment.

The best way to know if there will be a vaccination clinic at your child’s school is to check the Find a Clinic page on the All for Them website, clicking on your school district. You can also follow All for Them on Facebook, Instagram, or X (Twitter) to stay up-to-date on upcoming clinics, information about HPV, and more.

If you have questions about the registration process, an upcoming clinic, or vaccinations in general, reach out to the All for Them team at AllForThem@uth.tmc.edu or 866-255-1811.

All for Them is funded by the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (PP200017) and supported by The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.
