Rotarians, Gene Green host Back2School Immunizations

Congressman Green and Rotary District 5890 Governor Bill Palko, center, are joined at Galena Park High School by other Rotarians, who donated backpacks, medical and school personnel at the free immunization clinic last Saturday. In the background, hundreds of students attended the event.

Students in North Channel were headed back to school this week and last, but not before they got their immunization shots. Congressman Gene Green, with the help of several Rotary clubs, Walgreens, and others, held three clinics last Saturday for free shots. These were in North Houston, Galena Park, and Southeast Houston.

School started for Channelview students last week on Wednesday, August 16, for Sheldon students on August 22, and Galena Park students August 23. Furr High School will start on Monday, August 28.

Green was extremely busy this August, which is Congress’ break. He has completed four Town Hall meetings, and will hold another at North Shore Community Fellowship Church, 444 Maxey Road, on Tuesday night, August 29 at 6:30 p.m. He also held a Senior Citizens Forum on Tuesday in Aldine.

In October, he will host a Paying for College Workshop and Academy Day, and a Northside/Aldine Job Fair. Green’s Eastside office is at 11811 I-10 East, Suite 430, and can be reached at 713-330-0761.

Congressman Green speaks to the large number of students at the Back2School event at Galena Park High School.
Rotarian Maria Rodriguez says these shots don’t hurt… much.
