Dozens of Children Immunized in Shots 4 Tots Clinic

Dozens of southern Nevada children are now better protected against disease because of the latest United Way Shots 4 Tots event.

Nearly 150 kids got their vaccines during the event Saturday at the Walnut Recreation Center. This was the 50th time the Shots 4 Tots event has been held this year. So far, 20,900 children and infants have been immunized through the program. The United Way is hoping to increase the percentage of Nevada children who have been fully immunized. Kids get 80 percent of their vaccines in the first two years of life.

The event also gave families access to free dental exams through the UNLV Dental School and Safe Kids Clark County provided booster seats for the children in attendance.
