Baptist Health Offering Free Back-to-School Immunizations Aug. 19 in Stuttgart

STUTTGART, Ark. – As the new school year quickly approaches and many parents with young children are already thinking of back-to-school supplies, it’s also important to not forget about immunizations required by state law. 

Baptist Health Community Outreach is offering free back-to-school shots Saturday, Aug. 19, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Baptist Health Medical Center-Stuttgart, 1703 N. Buerkle St. COVID-19 vaccines will also be available for children ages 12 and older. 

Free backpacks filled with school supplies will be given to the first 50 children who receive immunizations at each location. Each child’s shot records as well as proof of Medicaid coverage or other health insurance, if applicable, must be presented before shots are given. 

For more information and to preregister, call (501) 202-1540. Walk-ins are welcome. 

In addition to immunizations, Baptist Health Community Outreach offers non-emergent health care services at wellness centers and health fairs, flu-shot clinics, chronic disease management, and more – all at no cost for the underserved and uninsured in central Arkansas.
