Shots For Tots Hosts Back To School Bash

In an effort to emphasize childhood immunizations and the need for immunizations before the start of the school year, Shots for Tots and Party Central in Bossier City are hosting a Back to School Bash on Friday, August 3.

This event will feature face painting, an inflatable jump house, balloon animals, and the Shots for Tots mobile unit, which will offer immunizations from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Every child who is immunized will receive a voucher for a free round of putt-putt golf. There also will be a special back-to-school surprise for each child with an up to date immunization record.

With the 2012 school year drawing closer, Bonnie Hughes, Shots for Tots program coordinator, says the Bash begins a two week long push by Shots for Tots to immunize as many children as possible.  “Keeping children immunized directly affects the health of our community,” she explained. “With the help of the Party Central we are bringing about community-wide awareness of childhood immunizations.”   Shots for Tots, a community service funded by Willis-Knighton Health System, provides immunizations, immunization scheduling, and consulting by a program nurse.  Vaccine is provided through the Louisiana Department of Public Health’s Vaccine for Children Program.
