Kids Get Free Vaccination Shots

Schools in the Clark County School District start classes Monday, which means this weekend is the last one for kids to get any vaccinations they may be missing.

Free immunizations were given out at the Martin Luther King Health Center Friday morning. Within just a few hours, 200 children were given injections. It is state law for children to be immunized against certain diseases, but Nevada has one of the lowest immunization rates in the country.

"It is very important for kids to get their immunizations before school starts to prevent any diseases or sicknesses,"  Dr. Darren Rahaman with Nevada Health Centers said.

There are immunizations that children going to school must have that children in other states do not need. To see the complete list of immunizations needed and a list of places to get the shots, go to snhd.info.
