AmeriCares Donates Mobile Clinic to Free Vaccination Program

  • May 29, 2009

AmeriCares is donating a mobile clinic to the Children’s Hospital in New Orleans, allowing the hospital to continue a highly successful immunization program.

In the last 11 years, more than 55,000 have been vaccinated against dangerous childhood diseases through this free program.

The program was in jeopardy because its old mobile clinic had fallen into disrepair and repairs were too costly.

As part of emergency and hurricane preparedness, the mobile clinic will also be available for use as a primary care facility in the event of any future disasters in the New Orleans area.

AmeriCares has been working with the Children’s Hospital since Hurricane Katrina as part of a comprehensive program to help restore health services throughout the Gulf Coast. Read more about AmeriCares work in the region.
