To help families protect their loved ones during holiday gatherings, Children’s Museum Tucson, 200 S. 6th Ave., will host a vaccination clinic from 9:00am- 5:00pm on Sunday, Dec. 12. Museum admission will also be free that day, thanks to support from Arizona Complete Health.
“We are excited to partner with health experts from El Rio and Pima County Health, and serve as a resource for all families in our community,” said CMT Executive Director Hilary Van Alsburg. “This free vaccine clinic will allow families to get questions answered and open the door to easy and free access to COVID-19 vaccines, boosters, and flu shots for anyone, just in time for holiday gatherings. We appreciate Arizona Complete Health for making it possible for families to play at the museum for free all day!”
Staff from El Rio Health will administer Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines for anyone age 5 and older, as well as flu vaccines. People receiving second or booster shots should bring their vaccination cards. El Rio and Pima County Health Department staff will be on site to answer questions about COVID-19 and the vaccines, and Pima County will distribute free BinaxNOW at-home rapid self-tests.
All shots are free. Clinic participants are encouraged to present their insurance cards if they have one. At a bonus, El Rio staff will be on hand to help determine Medicaid or Exchange eligibility for year-round coverage.
Anyone is welcome at the vaccine clinic. In order to enter the Museum, adults must be accompanied by children. Minors must be with a parent or guardian to receive vaccinations. The Museum requires masks for all visitors age 5 and older.
