No need for children to return to school without immunizations, because parents can arrange for free shots all summer from the Broward County and Palm Beach County health departments.
Broward health officials will give shots all summer at malls, schools and churches. Palm Beach County officials are vaccinating aboard their van at sites throughout the county, and at its health centers.
For locations, times and details, contact Broward County Health Department at http://www.browardchd.org or 954-467-4856; or the Palm Beach County Health Department at http://www.pbchd.com or 800-810-1225.
