To encourage children and their parents to receive routine immunizations, Mount St. Mary's Neighborhood Health Center is partnering with Fidelis Care for National Infant Immunization Awareness Week.
On Friday, May 2, from 9 a.m. to noon, Fidelis Care will be at the Neighborhood Health Center located at 3101 9th St., Niagara Falls. Patients of the Neighborhood Health Center will be able to receive child immunizations. Non-patients will be able to receive information about the shots and the Neighborhood Health Center. The Fidelis Care dinosaur will also be on site handing out goodie bags to children, in addition to face-painting and snacks.
The event is open to the public.
Representatives from Fidelis Care will also be on hand to provide insurance information and to assist families with how to obtain health coverage. To apply for coverage, bring proof of age, income, address and identity.
Fidelis Care offers affordable New York State-sponsored health insurance for children and adults of all ages and at all stages of life.
