Jill Conley’s lower lip began trembling as the nurse prepared her chicken pox vaccination.“Is it going to hurt?” she asked her mom, Bettina.
“A lot less than chicken pox,” Bettina replied.
Jill, 9, and her younger sister, Isabel, 8, were at the free immunization clinic offered by Lacamas Medical Group last week. It was coordinated for families who are without a regular health care provider.
A free immunization clinic will be offered at the Free Clinic of SW Washington, 4100 Plomondon St., Vancouver, on Wednesday, Aug. 28 beginning at 5 p.m., on a first-come, first-served basis.
