The “BEE WISE, BEE EARLY, IMMUNIZE ON TIME” back to school immunization clinics will be from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. Aug. 20 and 27 at the Health Department, 2400 Troost Ave.

The clinics will be open only to Missouri residents. In addition to free immunizations, the following attractions are scheduled:

Immunization has been cited as one of the 10 greatest public health achievements of the 20th century. It is one of the easiest, cheapest and most effective ways to protect children from potentially serious diseases. People today live longer and are healthier because of the vaccines they receive when they are children. Help us keep our children safe and healthy: “BEE WISE, BEE EARLY, IMMUNIZE ON TIME.”
