Free Back To School Immunizations
Biloxi Excel by Five and Coastal Family Health Care are teaming up to help kids get their immunization shots before they head back to school. Saturday, the center gave free shots to any child with an insurance card, photo id and shot record. Families who showed up around noon were turned away due to an overwhelming response from the community, but if you missed it you still have a chance to get your kids ready for the upcoming school year. The program will move to Lopez Elementary school in Biloxi on Monday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday from 8:30 to 4:30 and Wednesday from eight to four. Dr. Wendy Williams tells News 25, “So far we’ve had almost sixty kids, which has been a lot, so if you were here and it was trouble, I really apologize and we’re doing our best. Monday through Wednesday we will have more people and more time, and we will get everyone taken care of.” If you have any questions, you can contact Biloxi Excel by 5 am 228-297-6808.
