FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – As Broward County students get ready to head back to class next week, efforts are underway to make sure they’re protected against dangerous and sometimes life-threatening diseases.

The free immunizations and $30 school physicals are available between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. through Aug. 20 at two locations:

  • Cora E. Braynon Family Health Center, 200 NW Seventh Ave, Fort Lauderdale
  • Broward Health Pompano Pediatric Primary Care Center, 601 W. Atlantic Blvd, Pompano Beach

The program was initially scheduled to run through Aug. 13 but was extended for another week.
