Safety First for Denver Public Schools Students Through In-Person or Telehealth Visits

For in-person appointments, such as well child checks and immunizations, we are taking every precaution to keep our clinics clean and safe. We follow the same protocols as all other Denver Health locations. Providers are also available for a telehealth appointment, which is a visit by telephone. Our goal is to help keep you and your family safe and help stop the spread of COVID-19.

How to Schedule an Appointment at a School-based Health Center

When you call us to schedule an appointment, we will let you know if it can be done over the phone. During your phone appointment, if your provider feels they need to see you in person, they will let you know.
