Laredo Health Department to host Back-to-School Mobile Clinic – Laredo Morning Times

During the Back-to-School Mobile Clinic, COVID-19 immunizations will be available for the public. Eliseo Ceja, Public Information Specialist for the Laredo Health Department, said being vaccinated can protect not only students but parents.
The City of Laredo Health Department will be hosting a Back-to-School Mobile Health Clinic next week that will be open to the community.
The main objective is for the clinic to be able to provide free to low-cost health services.
During the clinic, several examinations and immunizations among other services will be available for all.
Some of the services are blood pressure and glucose exams, dental screening, BMI screenings, physical exams, OT and PT screenings, vaccines and maternal services.
“A lot of the time people don’t get these services because it’s hard to reach (them),” said Eliseo Ceja, Public Information Specialist for the Laredo Health Department. “It is a really good opportunity for people to get the health care services that they need.
“We are going to have mobile clinics out there for the people to be able to walk up to the stations where they are going to be able to get their physicals or their immunizations.”
Ceja also added that it is a recommendation to have people check themselves before going back to school.
“It is vital for them to also get a health care check up with a doctor as well as mental health services just to get an update of their well-being,” Ceja said. “It provides protection not only for the students but for the parents as well.”
The Back-to-School Mobile Clinic will take place on Aug. 5 at Sisters of Mercy Water Park at 2201 Zacatecas Street from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Food distribution, backpacks and school supplies, Zumba, prizes for the attendants as well as home COVID-19 test kits will also be provided for free.
Several organizations will be present to make available these services.
