Shreveport ---  The Department of Health Caddo Parish health unit will be open extended hours on Monday, Aug. 7 and Tuesday, Aug. 8 to accommodate parents bringing in children for back-to-school immunizations.

The clinic, located at 1035 Creswell Ave. in Shreveport, will be open from 8 a.m. – 6:30 p.m. on both days.  There will be a $10 administrative fee for immunizations, though no one will be turned away if they are unable to pay.

No appointments are necessary for immunizations, and parents are encouraged to take advantage of the extended hours to ensure their children are up-to-date before school starts.
