Mobile Health Unit
The Mobile Health Unit is a partnership between Murfreesboro City Schools and Middle Tennessee Medical Center with the shared vision to serve the whole child. Serving children begins with removing basic barriers to learning. If a child is sick, hungry, or in an unhealthy environment, their capacity to learn is diminished. By meeting the basic needs of each child, barriers are removed and children thrive. The vision of the Unit is to provide comprehensive care to our children and our community through:
•Serving the children and families of Rutherford County.
•Serving the faculty and staff of Rutherford County.
•Serving the community and focus on being a bridge to a permanent medical home.
St. Thomas Rutherford’s Mobile Health Unit will be serving City Schools’ employees with flu shot vaccinations again this year! They will operate just as last year; free shots to any employee without insurance or whose insurance won’t provide coverage for flu shots and billing insurance for those whose insurance will. No pre-qualifying is necessary. If there is an issue with insurance, the MHU will cover the cost of the shot. The forms will once again be in triplicate and filled out on-site. The employee will receive a copy of all vaccine information and proof of the vaccine the day of service. Please bring your insurance card with you when you receive your vaccination.
Following is the schedule for the month of October. The MHU will make it to every school in the district by October 31st! Central Office and the SHOP will have scheduled dates/times in November. If CO or the SHOP needs to receive their vaccination before November, please visit one of the school locations. If additional dates are necessary, we will schedule those in November.
