Chandler Regional Medical Center will be providing free vaccine clinics in Ahwatukee on Tuesday to children six weeks to 19 years old with no insurance, Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS) insurance, Indian Health Services, and private insurance that does not cover one or more of the required or recommended vaccines.

According to the vaccination hotline, parties interested in receiving the free vaccinations but are unsure if they are able to receive them can call ahead of time to fill out their consent forms appropriately. Insurance cards are not needed.

The following immunizations covered for children include: Flu, DTaP, Tetanus, Hepatitis A and B, Polio, Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR), Meningitis, among others.

Parents who bring their child to the vaccination clinics will need to bring their immunization records and any letters from schools that are requesting any specific vaccinations. The hotline also informs individuals interested in receiving vaccinations that they must arrive no later than 15 minutes before the schedule closing of the particular clinic, to ensure that each child is being taken care of.

The vaccination clinics will take place on Tuesday, Jan. 7 from 3 to 5 p.m. at Kyrene de las Lomas Elementary School, 11820 S. Warner-Elliot Loop. For any additional information on the vaccination clinics or different dates, call the vaccination hotline at (480) 728-3777.
