HDHHS, Children's Museum to Offer Free Child Vaccinations Thursday

The Houston Department of Health and Human Services (HDHHS) and the Children's Museum of Houston will offer free immunizations to children on Thursday, May 1, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in observance of National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW).

The Houston Care Van program will provide the vaccines during the museum's Free Family Night Thursday on a first-come, first serve basis (while supplies last) to children who receive Medicaid, CHIP, or are uninsured.  Children with private insurance do not qualify.  There's no need to pre-register. To qualify, parents and guardians will need their child's immunization records. 

Vaccines include Hepatitis A and B, Meningitis, PCV 13, Dtap, Tdap, HPV, Polio and Rotavirus. 
NIIW is an annual observance highlighting the importance of protecting infants from vaccine-preventable diseases. NIIW is on April 26 - May 3, 2014.

After the vaccinations, children and families are invited to stay and enjoy the many hands-on exhibits the Museum has to offer.  Head to FlowWorks and EcoStation to enjoy the great outdoors.

The museum is located at 1500 Binz. For more information, visit www.cmhouston.org or call 713-522-1138.
