Who are we?
The Mobile Medical Clinic (MMC) is a 40-foot bus funded by St. Joseph's Children's Hospital and several community grants. The MMC staff includes a Nurse Practitioner (ARNP), Child Advocates, Registered Nurses and volunteer pediatricians.
What do we do?
The MMC provides free immunizations and well child physicals to eligible children throughout Hillsborough County. Children are eligible to visit the MMC if they are 18 years old and under and who are:
- Enrolled in Medicaid OR
- Have no health insurance OR
- Are American Indian/Alaskan Native OR
- Have insurance that does not provide immunizations.
We give families the required forms (yellow physical form and blue immunization form) so children may be enrolled in school or daycare programs. We also:
- Make sure that all children who visit the MMC are fully immunized according to the required schedule and know about any additional age appropriate vaccines their child may be eligible for.
- Educate families about applying for Medicaid, Florida KidCare programs or other relevant community resources for Medical care.
- Assess all children for unintentional injury risks. MMC children and families are provided with educational resources and available products to maintain their safety.
- Provide developmental screens on all children 60 months and younger. Any child who shows signs of developmental delays are referred for services in the community.
- Help families with any needs for community referrals to make sure many of their basic needs are being addressed.
