Free immunizations before school starts

Minneapolis is encouraging people to get their children caught up on immunizations before school starts, and to help it’s offering free immunizations on eight dates in August and September. No need for appointments or insurance. This will catch your child up on all school-required immunizations including the “MMR” immunization: safe and effective protection against measles, mumps and rubella.

Measles can be dangerous, and it’s contagious

Measles can be dangerous – especially for babies and young children. About one in five people who get measles will be hospitalized. Measles can lead to pneumonia, brain damage, deafness and even death. Measles spreads easily through coughing and sneezing, and the germs can stick around in a room or a car for hours after a sick person has left. This year so far, 1,164 measles cases have been confirmed in the United States – the most since 1992.

On the South Side? No worries – there is free transportation from the New Families Center, 3345 Chicago Ave. S. (enter at 34th and Chicago). Find a shuttle schedule here.

The immunizations are provided by NorthPoint Health & Wellness Center in partnership with Minneapolis Public Schools. The City of Minneapolis is covering any costs for the immunizations at these events.
