It takes more than school supplies to get your child ready for the new school year.
The Houston Fire Department and the Blue Cross Blue Shield Care Van have teamed up again in 2009 to offer free childhood immunizations at your neighborhood fire stations. This is the perfect time to get your child up-to-date on their immunizations for school and avoid the rush before school resumes after the summer. The immunizations are FREE. All you need to bring is your children, your identification and your children's immunization records.
Immunization times are 4 p.m. -7 p.m.
