16th Annual Immunization Day
For the 16th year in a row, Congressman Gene Green will be hosting his Annual Immunization Day. This year’s event will be held on Saturday, August 20 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at three schools in the 29th District, which are listed below. In addition to providing free immunizations for children, the event will give parents an opportunity to speak with Congressman Green about preventive health initiatives.
“Immunization Day is one of our most widely attended events. Last year over 2,000 shots were given,” said Congressman Green. “Immunizations are one of the most important disease prevention steps we can take to protect our children. This is a great opportunity for them to get the shots they need for school for free.”
Parents are encouraged to bring their child’s immunization record to ensure that all necessary shots are received.
Rep. Green would like to thank the groups who will be helping to make Immunization Day a success this year: Harris County Hospital District, Immunization Clinic, Texas Children’s Hospital, and Aldine Community Health Center who will all be administering the immunizations. Texas Children’s Health Plan will be providing information on children’s health insurance plans. Other partners include Aldine ISD, Galena Park ISD, Houston ISD, the Rotary Club of North Shore, and Lyondell Bassel.
