Today (Wednesday, August 18) there are two mobile clinics giving free immunizations.

Back to School time means kids need to get their immunizations up to date and some parents want to get a coronavirus vaccine for their child that qualifies. If you are looking for free COVID vaccine doses for your children, you've got to act quickly. These free mobile clinics are for kids ages 12 years and up and they will receive the applicable Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine dose.

SIGNED CONSENT FORMS:

IMPORTANT: All children under age 18 will need to have a parent or guardian sign THIS CONSENT FORM in English or Spanish before any doses of the vaccine will be given to the child.

There are many appointments slots open for this afternoon and evening, so if you are not able to leave work early to run home and grab your kids on your lunch break take them down to get the free shots, you don't have to stress out.
