Newark kids are getting a booster. The School Bus Express program is in full swing getting children up to date with their immunizations for this coming school year.
The annual program provides free vaccinations to ensure Newark children meet the immunization requirements before starting or returning to school. Dorothy McCall, manager of children’s services at the Department of Child and Family Well-Being says one of the benefits of the program is not having to wait to see a doctor.
“You never know when and who it will affect it’s just so easy today to get such diseases, and with the health department being here and you can get the immunizations, then get it, as opposed to putting it off.”
McCall says there are extended hours for parents who work, and no appointment is required. The program will run until September 14th at the Department of Child and Family Well-Being in Newark’s Central Ward.
