The Benton-Franklin Health District would like to remind everyone about vaccinations before you're caught in the mad rush in September!

When everybody drags their summer-lovin' sun-tanned sand-encrusted kids back to school Sept. 1 many will be hit with surprise vaccination reminders. They'll all schedule appointments and the wait will be long.

Go now! The health district is encouraging people to plan ahead. If you have a kindergartener, they need some for sure!

The only thing worse than kids dreading a shot, it's having to sit there a LONG TIME before getting the shot!

To schedule an appointment call 509-460-4200. Walk-ins will be served, but on a first-come, first-serve basis between appointments.
