Free vaccine clinic

The Cabarrus Health Alliance (CHA) will host a free, walk-in vaccination clinic this evening, Thursday, Sept. 12. The vaccination clinic will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Cabarrus Health Alliance building located at 300 Mooresville Road in Kannapolis. No appointment will be needed.

Children who need state-required vaccinations will be able to get their vaccinations during the clinic. The cost is free for anyone with Medicaid or who does not have insurance. For families with insurance coverage, the Health Alliance will file the insurance claims.

By North Carolina law, children who do not have their state-required vaccinations by the 30th day of school will not be allowed to attend school until the immunizations have been received.

Thursday, Sept. 12 is the 30th day of school in Kannapolis City Schools. Therefore the CHA Vaccination Clinic is being set up to help families get the vaccinations they need.
