Health Department Giving Out Free Back-to-School Shots
ALACHUA COUNTY---School will be in session in just a couple of weeks.
Some of us may be celebrating the tax-free shopping holiday, but don't forget to also get your kids their shots!
The Alachua County Health Department hosted a back-to-school immunization clinic Saturday.
The clinic provides all of the school-required shots for kids grades K-12.
And the best part for the parents is that there is no cost to them.
"The shots are free regardless of status, income, who your pediatrician is. If you come in and you're under the age of 19, all the regular back-to-school immunizations are free. And they can be pretty expensive, so it's a huge benefit," said registered nurse Julie Vantuin.
The Alachua County Health Department will host another free shot clinic next Saturday at Santa Fe College, as well as staying open until 8 p.m. the next two Wednesday nights.
