The Maricopa County Department of Public Health is opening a free immunization clinic March 17 in Mesa as part of a continuing effort to protect all children countywide from preventable diseases.
The clinic, at 6118 E. Main St., east of Recker Road, will offer free shots to children two days a week, said Doug Hauth, a department spokesman. If there isn’t a shot record, one will be started for the child.
"This represents a long, ongoing effort to ensure all children under 18 receive all necessary and suggested immunizations," Hauth said.
The clinic is the fourth regional clinic opened by the health department. Two clinics are in Phoenix and a third is in Mesa, at 423 N. Country Club Drive, near University Drive.
Between the two Mesa clinics, free immunizations will available 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. five days a week, with the Country Club office open Monday, Tuesday and Friday, and the Main Street office open Wednesday and Thursday.
