NORTH HOUSTON – For nearly a quarter of a century, U.S. Rep. Gene Green has held a back-to-school immunization clinic at locations in his District TX-29, in northeast Houston. Even though Green is leaving office soon, he says the tradition is likely to continue under the next office-holder.

Three Houston area locations played host to Green’s immunization clinics on Saturday, Aug. 11 – North Shore High School, AAMA Learning Center on Gulf Freeway, and UT Physicians Jensen Clinic on the north side. Through various community partners, the impact of families served numbered in the thousands.

“Our goal is to have healthy children for the next generation of our community,” Green said.
