NAM partnered with CHRISTUS Healthy Living Mobile Clinics on Thursday, August 15, 2019, to provide back to school immunizations for students. The shots were free to children between the ages of 2 months and 18 years old who did not have health insurance, or who have Medicaid or are under-insured.
The CHRISTUS Healthy Living Mobile Clinic was parked in the front area of NAM’s parking lot from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. Families started arriving in NAM’s lobby at 8 a.m. to register their child and wait for their name to be called.
Once CHRISTUS left at 1 p.m., those that were not able to receive shots were not turned away. NAM’s Pediatric Health Center handed out coupons to everyone who was left waiting to receive shots for their child. These coupons will allow families to bring their child to NAM’s Pediatric Health Center at any time during business hours to receive all of their immunizations for only $10.
The Pediatric Health Center at NAM provides top-quality primary care for children from birth to age 18, as well as integrated comprehensive healthcare.
As a partnership between NAM and the University of Texas Health Science Center, the Pediatric Health Center care for everyday medical needs of children with or without insurance, including Medicaid and CHIP. But it goes far beyond that to address issues that may be impacting a child’s health, such as financial needs, their home environment, nutrition and exercise, coordination with specialists, or the need for behavioral health therapy.
