Christus Spohn and NAACP give immunizations

Immunizations handed out residents affected by Harvey

REFUGIO (KIII NEWS) - The Christus Spohn van was out Sunday and offered free flu and tetanus vaccines for Hurricane Harvey victims, volunteers and relief workers. 

The NAACP is helping the Care Van visit Aransas Pass, Rockport and Refugio. 

Refugio resident Laura Scott said, " I appreciate it because a lot of people can't afford to have a tetanus shot at this time because money is kind of short right now".

Tetanus is a bacterial infection that can be contracted from rusty nails; a huge problem in the aftermath of Harvey. Health experts say to use caution when handling destroyed structures and to wear footwear around these sites.
