A health center with multiple locations in the Las Vegas Valley is set to help families get a jump start on the upcoming school year with immunization clinics.
FirstMed Health and Wellness Centers will host free back-to-school immunization clinics to prepare children who need to meet Nevada's immunization requirements, a release said.
"This is a great opportunity for parents to make sure their school-aged children are fully immunized before entering school and comply with Clark County school entry requirements," said Pam Beal, Chief Operating Officer for FirstMed. "Vaccines are safe, effective and protect our communities from diseases."
The immunizations will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis to Medicaid eligible, uninsured and under-insured school-aged children and adolescents, according to a release.
The immunization clinics will be held on these dates at the following locations:Saturday, July 14 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 400 Shadow Lane suite 106 Saturday, July 28 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 3343 South Eastern Avenue Saturday, Aug. 11 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 3940 North Martin Luther King Boulevard suite 105B
Parents should bring their child's immunization records to the clinic. A representative for Nevada WebIZ, a web-based immunization registry, will be on-site to assist parents who may not have a copy of their child's records.
