Elementary through high school students can get free vaccines and health screenings at ICP Church on Saturday from 10 until 2. Florida Hospital’s Sarah Heintzelman says all the organizations participating want to make students can put their best foot forward starting the new school year.

“We’re partnered not only with ICP Church but the local Department of Health. So the DOH is coming in and doing the immunizations so anything we can do to set them up to in the best possible shape to start the school year has been taken care of.”
