For Immediate Release:
Immunize Nevada to host Community Baby Showers as Part of National Infant Immunization Week!
Reno, Nev. (April 3, 2019) — As part of our celebration of National Infant Immunization Week, April 27-May 4, Immunize Nevada will host two free community baby showers in northern Nevada. These baby showers will include a health resource fair and free immunization clinic for young children to get their recommended vaccines.
The Douglas County Community Baby Fair is set for Thursday, April 25 from 8:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. at the Douglas County Community Center Gym. The Reno Community Baby Fair is Saturday, April 27 from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. at Meadowood Mall in the center court. Both events are free-admission and all ages are welcome to attend!
Immunizations will be offered at a reduced cost or free to eligible children. Adult vaccines will also be offered. Please bring your insurance card and immunization record with you.
The community baby fairs are part of National Infant Immunization Week, an annual observance to highlight the importance of protecting infants from vaccine-preventable diseases. It brings together hundreds of communities across the United States to celebrate the critical role vaccination plays in protecting the health of our children, families, and communities. This year marks the 25th year of NIIW.
“National Infant Immunization Week provides a valuable opportunity to remind our community how important it is for children to be vaccinated,” said Heidi Parker, Immunize Nevada Executive Director. “Immunizations prevent disease, increase our ability to live healthy lives, and save millions of dollars in healthcare costs.”
Immunize Nevada would like to thank the generous sponsors who help keep these great events free to the public! Thank you Nevada Health Link, Health Plan of Nevada, Anthem, SilverSummit Healthplan, Liberty Dental Plan, Washoe County Health District, Douglas County Community Health.
