The City of Detroit Department of Health and Wellness Promotion will host its annual immunization fair on Sunday, August 26 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, which is located at 315 E. Warren Ave.

Eligible children, newborn through 18 years old, can receive free immunizations for diseases such as polio, rubella, measles, mumps, tetanus, chicken pox, diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough), and Hepatitis B. Additional services include registration for the Women, Infants, and Children feeding program, and enrollment for insurance. Giveaways will be provided.  Parents and guardians should bring a copy of their child’s shot record, identification and insurance card if Medicaid insures. Participants are eligible for shots if they are underinsured or have no insurance.
