FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 1, 2015
Atlanta GA – Immunizations, vision, hearing and dental screenings, will be available FREE at the “Back-toSchool Immunization Drive” at Southside Medical’s headquarters facility, at 1046 Ridge Avenue SW, Atlanta GA 30315, Saturday July 25, 2015 from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM.
In addition to the usual classroom basics, vaccinations should be on every parent and guardian back-to-school checklist. Healthcare professionals will be on hand to answer questions, provide the medical check ups and screenings that children 4 to 18 years old need for the start of the new school year.
The immunization drive is free and open to the public. Parking is also free. A parent or guardian must bring their child’s current immunization records.
Short of a visit to a Southside Medical Center pediatrician, this is a great way for school-aged children to receive shots required for school, learn about staying healthy and have some fun at the same time.
Southside is also providing free haircuts, face painting, music, arts and crafts, a bounce house, clowns, balloons, and pony rides. The Atlanta Fire Department will be present displaying a fire truck and fire fighting equipment. FREE schools supplies loaded in backpacks will be given to the first 200 children who receive immunizations!
