For 20+ years, Rotary Club of Dubuque has enjoyed a continued partnership with the Visiting Nurses Association (VNA) of Dubuque County to provide immunizations for area youth – kindergarten thru high school age. Each year over 100 area children receive immunizations and dental checks.
Scheduled childhood vaccinations are among the basics of effective child health care. Unfortunately, some children of families in need in our community may not get their shots, placing their long-term health care at risk. Rotary Club contributes funds annually to pay for vaccines and volunteer Rotarians assist by signing in children, helping nurses hold infants and comfort frightened children, and hand out prizes for “bravery”.
