Health Fair at Yankee Stadium Wednesday

The Yankees and Lincoln Medical Center continue their borough-wide efforts to immunize children and adolescents ages 4-18. The seventh collaborative “Back-to-School Immunization Health Fair” will be held at Yankee Stadium Wednesday in the FedEx Banquet and Conference Center from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Vaccinations protect children now and for years to come against serious, sometimes life-threatening diseases such as tetanus, diphtheria, whooping cough, and hepatitis. The Lincoln Medical Center and the Yankees partnership promote awareness of childhood diseases and the importance of timely vaccinations.

“As we strive to ensure that every child is immunized and protected against preventable childhood diseases, this joint venture with the New York Yankees is invaluable,” Lincoln Medical Center executive director Milton Nunez said. “It is imperative to make immunizations available to as many children as possible.”
