We participate in the Immunize and Win a Prize! Contest. This outreach project provides infant Tylenol, stickers, digital thermometers, Sippy cups, hand sanitizer, and Band-Aids to families each time they bring their child in to be immunized. ALL children birth to age 2 are eligible for this program. An incentive is provided each time the child gets immunizations. Each participant will be entered in a drawing when they complete their immunization series before the age of 2. This drawing could win them a $200 credit to the utility bill of their choice.
