    Shot clinicAs schools around Pima County continue to welcome students back to class, the Pima County Health Department and Golder Ranch Fire District are teaming up to immunize kids for school. On Wednesday Aug. 6, paramedics from Golder Ranch Fire will be at the Health Department’s Catalina Office from 1 to 4 p.m. to help provide immunization shots.

    The clinic, located in Catalina at 3535 E. Hawser St., welcomes walk-ins and appointments by calling 520-825-9299. Vaccines are free whether children are covered by insurance or not and parents should bring their child’s immunization records and any AHCCCS or other health insurance information they have.

    “Getting immunized is one of the most important ways people can protect their families’ health and wellness and it’s exciting to have Golder Ranch Fire helping us provide immunizations in the community,” said Nursing Division Manager Kathleen Malkin of the Pima County Health Department.

    The Aug. 6 clinic is just the beginning of the collaborative efforts between Golder Ranch Fire and the Health Department. Over the coming months, first responders from Golder Ranch will work side-by-side with Health Department nursing staff to provide immunizations at both the Catalina and North Health Department locations. This will not only give them an opportunity to continue expanding their service in the community – it also means that during times when immunization clinics are busy, like back to school time or during an outbreak, there are more trained and capable staff who can provide immunizations.
