WASHINGTON — Health centers for students will be opening at 34 schools across King County this month to offer services even while students are learning online.
These centers will offer primary care for students, including services like seasonal vaccines, dental care and mental health counseling.
The health centers serve any student enrolled in the participating school districts. They operate at 27 Seattle Public Schools, including all high schools and middle schools, along with a number of elementary schools.
Five additional centers serve students in the Bellevue, Highline, Renton and Vashon school districts. The centers are independent clinics based inside schools or on school campuses, staffed by health professionals.
Two new centers will be opening this fall, at Lowell Elementary and at Nova High School in Seattle.
