If your child needs a checkup but they're currently uninsured, there's an event coming up in May that might help put your mind at ease.

The City of Harker Heights will host a free children's clinic on Saturday, May 15th from 9 am to 1 pm.

Physicians will provide free visits for both sick and well children, sports physicals, vision and hearing screenings, and vaccines. Some community resources will also be available for families in need.

The free children's pop-up clinic will provide services that will include sports, physicals, vision/hearing screenings.

The clinic will be held at the Harker Heights Activities Center at 400 Indian Trail Dr.

All minors in attendance must be accompanied by an adult, and you'll need to take your state issued ID or driver's license. Immunization records will be required as well.

If you have any questions, contact the Healthy Homes Office inside the Harker Heights Police Department at (254) 953-5439.

If you can't make it to this clinic or live closer to the Temple area, Feed My Sheep Temple will host a free children's clinic on Saturday, March 27 at Temple Charter Academy, 7177 Airport Rd.

So many families have been negatively impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and February's winter storm, and many are going through some financial troubles. If your family can benefit from either of these free children's clinics, please don't hesitate to do so. It's a blessing that we live in a community in which volunteers are willing to give their time to such a great cause - helping Central Texas children in need.
