Free Childhood Immunizations


Immunize El Paso will be providing free immunization during National Infant Immunization Week from Mon, Apr 26 through Friday, May 1. All children 5 years of age and younger will be screened and immunized at no cost.

222 S. Campbell, BSMT
El Paso, TX 79901

Each year, thousands of children become ill from diseases that could have
been prevented by basic childhood immunizations. Countless more miss time
from day care and school because they are under-immunized or inappropriately

During the week of April 25, Immunize El Paso will observe National Infant
Immunization Week (NIIW), a CDC Prevention initiative designed to raise
awareness about the importance of childhood immunizations. Each year during
NIIW, the local non-profit leads child immunization programs across the area
in hosting activities to promote vaccinations for children of all ages.

Immunize El Paso will provide free immunizations for all children 5 years of
age and younger in observance of National Infant Immunization Week.
Immunizations can be obtained at the Tillman Health Center located at 222 S.
Campbell Street Monday through Friday from 9AM to 12 NOON and from 2PM to
5PM without an appointment. "Providing free immunizations this week provides
a wonderful opportunity to remove at least one of the traditional barriers
to immunization we may typically see in our area" said Dusty Warden,
Outreach Coordinator for Immunize El Paso.

Immunize El Paso will also be hosting a free immunization workshop
for school personnel, healthcare providers and anyone interested on Friday,
May 1, 2009 from 5:30 - 7:30 PM. "This will be a wonderful opportunity to
address those on the front lines of immunizations and to describe some of
the new mandates impacting kids enrolling into school next year" added

Please join us at El Paso Commissioner's Court on Monday, April
17th at 9:30 AM as National Infant Immunization Week is officially
recognized by our county elected officials.  For more information regarding
any of the community activities planned for National Infant Immunization
Week, please contact Immunize El Paso at 915-533-3414 or visit
