Free back-to-school events popular over the weekend

Posted: Updated:

The need for immunization shots is being highlighted this summer by an outbreak of measles in Texas.  There have been 14 cases reported across the state, thirteen of them in North Texas.

Immunizations are required to start school and on Saturday, Dallas County offered them for free with a line wrapped around the building. 

At Irving High School, parents and kids got to take advantage of free dental screenings and eye exams.  Irving students in need also benefited from the kindness of others by receiving school supplies and backpacks… all for free.

If you missed Saturday's free shot clinic, Dallas County Health and Human Services will offer vaccinations Monday through Friday this coming week at all of its six locations.  But, regular fees will apply.  They're open from 8am to 4pm.  You'll need to take all vaccination records with you.
