Education Notes: Fall vaccination clinics offered

THURSDAY, SEPT. 1, 2011

Parents still have three more opportunities to get their children vaccinated for the flu, whooping cough, chicken pox and measles. A preventative shot not only protects the child, but other children in their school and community.

Ella Road in Spokane Valley, from 2 to 5 p.m.; Sept. 20 at Farwell Elementary School, 13005 N. Crestline St., in the Mead School District, from 3 to 6 p.m.; and Sept. 21 at Shiloh Hills Elementary School, 505 E. Stonewall Ave., also in the MeadDistrict, from 3 to 6 p.m.

For more information, call (509) 324-1600.
