Aldine offers low-cost, free shots

Free or inexpensive immunizations are available for adults and children at Aldine Senior High School in conjunction with the Harris County Public Health and Environmental Services Humble Health Center.
The immunization clinics will be held in the foods lab, room 802. The community is asked to enter the food lab via the West Road parking lot and to bring previous immunization records if available.

Fees range from $4 to $15 and are based on a sliding fee scale, the number of family members and gross monthly income.

Immunization for hepatitis is not available for adults. Chicken pox, or varicella, immunizations are given only at the health centers.

Aldine’s immunization clinics will be held on Nov. 6 and Dec. 4 for the remainder of this year. The dates for spring 2002 are Feb. 5, March 5, April 2 and May 7.

Free immunizations for children between the ages of 11-19 who are enrolled in Aldine schools are available by appointment at the Incarnation Health Center, located at 8230 Antoine. Those interested should call 281-445-8815 for an appointment and directions.
