Back to shots has Tuscaloosa Health Dept. busy

TUSCALOOA COUNTY - AL -

    A back-to-school walk-in immunization clinic left the Tuscaloosa County Health Department packed out.

   By noon, nurses had already given out a more than a hundred shots of vaccines against mumps, measles, Chicken pox and rubella...just to name a few.

   Pamela Moody tells ABC 3340 didn't really expect the big turnout Friday since they had been offering the back to school shots all week.

   The immunizations are free for those on medicaid.  The price for others are scaled according to income.

   The Tuscaloosa County Health Department will continue the Back-to-School immunizations next Monday and Wednesday.
