Mobile Medical Clinic


Who are we?

Mission: Our clinic seeks to provide well child care and immunizations to children in need and to facilitate timely entrance to school and daycare facilities.

The Mobile Medical Clinic (MMC) is a 40-foot bus equipped with a waiting room, immunization safe storage, exam room, and pertinent medical equipment to provide comprehensive well child services.

The MMC project began in early 2004, with the goal of addressing the community-wide problem of reduced immunization compliance among young children. Many families were unable to find convenient or low cost immunization providers. Thus the concept for the MMC was born and became a widely used service for Tampa residents. In 2005, the MMC began to offer well child physicals in response to feedback from families. Currently the MMC provides a variety of services to meet the wide range of needs of the families we serve.

Our staff includes a board certified nurse practitioner, two registered nurses, a bilingual early childhood specialist, a bilingual child advocate, and a team of dedicated volunteer healthcare providers.

What do we do?
We offer: Well Child Exams, Immunizations and Immunization Record Checks, Developmental Screens, Hearing Screens, Vision Screens, and Health and Safety Education.

We do not offer sports or camp physicals, treatment of illness, medication or prescriptions.
To qualify, children must be 18 years old or younger and have Medicaid, no health insurance or be Native American or Alaskan Native. We cannot see children who have Florida KidCare or private health insurance.

How much does it cost?
On “The Bus,” everything is FREE for families, and we strive to provide high quality, personalized care for each of our patients and the family as a whole.
 
Where does it go?
The MMC travels to many areas in Hillsborough County. Check out the most recent schedule below for locations near you:
