Rep. Gene Green hosts 22nd Annual Immunization Day Aug. 19

HOUSTON, TX – Congressman Gene Green will be hosting his Annual Immunization Day on Saturday, August 19, 2017, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at three locations 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 1,500 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 children to get the shots they need for school at no cost.”

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 Health System, UT Physicians Community Health & Wellness Center Jensen, 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, Walgreens, Rotary International District 5890, Lyondell Basell, and St. Hope Foundation.
