Most kids are heading back to school in Florida next week. But before they can sit down in a classroom, many will have to sit down in the doctor's office for required vaccinations or a physical.
That presents a dilemma for kids from families who are uninsured or underinsured. Lindsey Hernandez and her children have insurance through Medicaid. But that doesn't mean it's easy or convenient to get health care. At a back-to-school health fair last weekend at St. Petersburg College, four of her children got free physicals.
