Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center will hold its annual sports physicals clinics from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 27 and Sept. 7 at the Thomas Moore Health Clinic.

Children ages 4 to 18 who are enrolled in Tricare are eligible to receive care at these clinics. All participants are required to make an appointment. Walk-ins will be redirected to their primary care clinics.

Routine childhood immunizations will not be offered during the clinics this year. Parents should contact their primary care clinics to receive information on immunizations.

Children with appointments must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and should be dressed in comfortable gym clothing and shoes.

Those older than 10 must have a DEERS identification card in their name.

Parents or guardians of children under the age of 10 will also be required to provide a DEERS identification card.

Participants will need to bring a copy of their school’s sports physical form and their immunization record.

The Killeen Parks and Recreation Department does not require sports physicals for participation.

Killeen and Copperas Cove Independent School Districts only require sports physicals for students who are entering seventh, ninth or 11th grade unless there has been a change in the student’s medical condition since the last examination.
