Don’t look now, but it’s already August, and Back to School is around the corner. Have your kids been vaccinated for their return to school? Before your kids get exposed to a whole new round of potential diseases, don’t forget to make sure all their vaccines are up to date.
Fortunately, many hospitals, churches and other organizations have organized mobile immunization clinics to help you get your kids vaccinated quickly, conveniently and inexpensively. Mobile immunization clinics bring vaccines to your neighborhood to help families get their kids immunized with as little fuss as possible. In addition, many mobile immunization clinics priotize taking care of underserved, low-income families, the uninsured, and non-English speakers.
