Back 2 School Expo offers student freebies

School is just around the corner and being “school ready” means being up-to-date on immunizations. Luckily, there are many events and clinics available to help you and your student get ready for school.

Texas law requires children to be up-to-date on their immunizations prior to the first day of school. Avoid the long lines and immunize early! The City of San Antonio Metropolitan Health District has planned many back-to-school immunization events, including a Back 2 School Expo on Saturday, August 10, 2013 from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the Freeman Coliseum Exposition Center.

The free family event will offer free and low-cost immunizations, free backpacks and schools supplies, free kids haircuts and entertainment. Participants also have a chance to register for a $1,000 shopping spree from North Star Mall and The Shops at La Cantera.
