Don't wait until the last minute, get the kids vaccinated now for free

School starts soon and that means some kids will need vaccinations.

Don't wait until the last minute, get the kids vaccinated now for free.

The Mesa Fire and Medical Department has an immunization program that allows kids through age 18 to get their shots for free.

They have clinics monthly, including every second Wednesday of the month.

Those clinics are at Fiesta Mall from 5 to 7 p.m.

To qualify your child must be uninsured or have insurance that doesn't cover vaccinations.

You don't need an appointment. Just show up with your child's immunization records.

Let me give you an idea of how much you're really saving by taking advantage of these free immunizations.

I took popular vaccines that kids need for school and priced them with the Maricopa County Department of Health .

The cost for Hepatitis A and B, Polio and MMR vaccines will cost you $255. That's a huge chunk of change!

There are immunizations clinics statewide so beat the crowds and get it done free.
