TUCSON, Ariz. -- If you want to take advantage of free shots and dental screenings for your kids, now is your chance.

El Rio Health Center is partnering with Tucson Federal Credit Union to offer free immunizations.

The first one took place Thursday at the Boys and Girls Clubhouse at Roberts Elementary.

"It's very important that we protect our children from the things we can protect them from.  So, good nutrition, good sleep, regular exercise is all very important.  Vaccines are just one extra tool that we use to help kids get protected when they head off into the world," said Andrew Arthur.

The next clinic takes place next Thursday from 3:00 to 6:00 P.M. at the Frank and Edith Morton Clubhouse on Grant Road and two more clinics follow it.
