TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Cochise Health and Social Services are opening five vaccination clinics on six different days in Cochise County beginning July 22 for all school-age children heading back to school.

All necessary school vaccines will be available and shots will be given to walk-ins on a first-come, first-served basis, according to a CCSS news release. All clinics will accept walk-ins in the morning from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. and again in the evening from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

CHSS reminds all parents to bring the child’s immunization records and insurance card to the clinic.

No fees will be applied at the time of service. Children covered under AHCCCS or private plans will be billed directly. All children will be vaccinated regardless of inability to pay or no insurance coverage.

Clinic schedules will be as follows:

·Douglas Clinic, July 22 and July 29

“Immunization is one of the most important things a parent can do to protect their children’s health. Today we can protect children from 14 serious diseases,” officials said. “Failure to vaccinate may mean putting children at unnecessary risk for serious diseases.”
