Shots 4 Tots August Clinics

August 16, 2011

We never want to see our children get sick. Now suppose you could make your child safe from deadly diseases. And suppose that at the same time you could also help protect other people from the same diseases. You can do all of these things with one of the easiest and yet most powerful, health tools ever developed, vaccines. Unfortunately, not everyone is aware of the benefits of vaccines. Fortunately, there is a program in southern Nevada that helps educate families and provide these vaccines. Vaccines are free and the administrative fee is waived during Shots 4 Tots clinics. Shots 4 Tots was created as a response to low levels of immunizations among children 0-3 years of age. Vaccines are recommended at an early age because the diseases they prevent can be far more serious or common among infants and young children. The Southern Nevada Health District in partnership with the United Way of Southern Nevada, offers low-cost vaccines to children 0-3 years of age during Shots 4 Tots clinics.

One week of every month is designated Shots 4 Tots week at health district public health centers. Additional clinics are scheduled throughout the community to make vaccinating your children more convenient. Clinics are posted here as they are scheduled.
