    Dear SUSD Families,

    Beginning May 4, 2020, SUSD will open the Sutter Street Clinic to provide your family with school enrollment physicals and immunizations.  The Sutter Street Clinic is located behind the SUSD Enrollment Center at 1800 Sutter Street.  Signs
    will be posted on the street directing families to the clinic.  Social distancing will be in place, with only one family allowed in the clinic at a time.  Families waiting in the courtyard will receive a buzzer to notify them of their turn to enter the clinic.
    The clinic is open to Community Medical Center patients, Medi-Cal patients with no primary care physician, and uninsured children.  Please note that this is not a full-scope medical clinic; Children with illnesses should go to their primary care provider.

    Clinic hours are Mondays and Thursdays, 8:00 am – 5:00 pm and will be closed for lunch from 12:00pm – 1:00 pm.  Families in need of school physicals and/or immunizations can call (209) 944-4700 to make an appointment at the Sutter Street Clinic.

    We understand that parents are hesitant to bring their children to a medical facility at this time, but health care providers are taking numerous precautions to ensure your family’s safety.  California has NOT waived the requirements for immunizations due to COVID-19.  When California ‘reopens,’ there may be many children who need to catch up on immunizations, increasing wait times for appointments.  While waiting they could be exposed to dangerous vaccine-preventable diseases circulating in the community.  Let's avoid that danger by keeping your child on track.
