Children, with their parents or guardians, are invited to enjoy games, a bounce house, a clown, face and finger painting and much more as part of the day’s entertainment. In addition, each child will receive a free back pack filled with school supplies (while supplies last).  Heath screenings, such as glucose and vision, as well as services, such as immunizations and dental hygiene, will be offered to eligible children.  

What: Free entertainment, back packs (while supplies last), health screenings and immunizations.
When: Saturday, Aug. 20, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

In addition to the fun activities and immunizations, the Back 2 School Health Resource Fair will also offer school physicals for $20.  Free immunizations for school-aged children are based on eligibility.   Parents or guardians must be present and have a child’s current immunization record.  For more information, call 954-759-7400.
