The Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County starts its popular no-cost clinic on Tuesday for kids in kindergarten through 12th grade.

For parents and guardians with limited income and no insurance, the medical, dental and vaccination checkups are available to get kids compliant with school requirements.

Because the demand for the free doctor and dentist visits is high, four locations and extra dates are available this summer.

The exams can be done in about 45 minutes between 8:00 a.m. and 2:45 p.m. at the following four locations:

Pinellas Park High School Clinic
6305 118th Ave N., Pinellas Park
