     FORT LAUDERDALE, FL– Non-profit Holy Cross Hospital is assisting parents and caregivers in preparing students for the new school year by offering free immunizations for eligible students at back-to-school events across Broward County from July 13 through August 10.

Children who are uninsured or enrolled in Florida KidCare or Medicaid are eligible. A current immunization record and the presence of a parent or legal guardian are required at the time of immunization.

“While children who are enrolled in Florida KidCare and Medicaid are entitled to receive free check-ups and immunizations at their health-care provider’s office, we have found that busy parents and caregivers don’t always have the time to fit these visits into the few short weeks of a summer break,” said Holy Cross Vice President of Community Health and Well-Being Kim Saiswick. “That is why we are committed to bringing these wellness events out into the community where children can easily receive the immunizations, they need to help keep them healthy all year round.”

The back-to-school immun-ization events will be held on:
