Children and Health Fair 2013
We may not have had a carousel at our Children’s Health Fair but we did have 47 excited children running from station to station to get their teeth checked, their eyes screened, their hearing looked at and their diet talked about.
With the help of dedicated volunteers there were haircuts and bug busters. There was art work and infant development information and popcorn and Hot dogs and Hamburgers.
All to encourage pre-kindergarten immunization!
We would like to say hay ce:p qa to:
Vancouver Island Health Authority; audiology, nutrition, dental and their immunization nurse
