    Many children will need immunizations before starting the 2016-2017 school year. As you plan the summer activities, why not avoid the long lines when the kids are going back to school and include a stop to your medical provider or one of the public health clinics?

    The Pima County Health Department clinics provide immunizations Monday through Friday. With an appointment, you won’t have to wait, but walk-ins also are welcome and there is no charge for children!

    “Serious, preventable illnesses are greatly reduced or avoided altogether when parents take action to vaccinate their children,” said Dr. Francisco García, Pima County’s public health director and chief medical officer. “In fact, vaccines are the single most effective way to prevent the spread of disease.”
